This independent and critical documentary brings together an extraordinary cast of interviewees to shed light on how Amnesty International has changed the world, and how the world has changed Amnesty International. Amnesty! When They Are All Free mixes contemporary events and history to reveal how a letter-writing organisation has developed into one of the worlds most influential NGOs. It portrays Amnestys successes and failures over the decades, and the challenges it now faces as a multinational movement trying to hold its ground in a shifting human rights landscape. The film poses the fundamental question: has the human rights movement been able to hold back mankinds capacity for atrocity?
