Creative projects are a powerful tool for campaigning against human rights abuses. They are in our DNA, and it is part of what makes us unique.
Reprieve was founded because the documentary film 14 Days in May had a profound impact on people who might not otherwise have been shown behind the curtain and seen the reality of the death penalty.
Creative projects bring our clients’ cases to new audiences. They can go beyond facts and figures to reveal the human stories behind human rights abuses – in ways that do justice to survivors and victims. And they can leave a lasting impression on people in a way that creates long-term social change.
We have worked on an incredibly wide range of creative projects, from short films and art installations about Guantánamo Bay to fictionalisations of our work on the death penalty.
