a handful of (great) videos

In around the world on June 6, 2011 at 8:38 am

Firstly, the spot for the 50th anniversary of Amnesty International. There’s also been a great documentary about Amnesty and its continuous fight for human rights last week on BBC 4, definitely worth watching:

And a link to the documentary that tries to¬† ‘shed light on how, as a ‘letter-writing organisation, Amnesty International has changed the world and how the world has changed Amnesty International. It poses the fundamental question: has the human rights movement been able to hold back mankind’s capacity for atrocity?

After that, time for a bit of music:

Some crazy stop-motion going on there!

The next video looks a bit like an American Apparel ad, but I think the song’s great, reminds me of Battles (a bit):

And a video about the science behind music (despite the fact that the description of the video sounds a bit more than pretentious, it’s worth watching):

Weclome to the working week!
