knaan300-74921d984ae06cfd50fd44dfca82f1c4361c95a2-s6-c30Filmed in NYC, Somali-Canadian world music star K’Naan reflects on the two different parts to his early life: the first part idyllic and “majestic,” raised in a refined and respected family, with a life of love, intellectual challenge and respect, and the second part, a life of violence as war gripped his home town of Mogadishu, and he saw his friends die senseless deaths. He speaks candidly about human indifference to suffering.

Produced in 2008 for the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
