To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights in 1988, award-winning director Stephen Johnson brought together 41 of the most talented international animators, musicians and producers to create this unique work. The 20-minute video brings to life the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in brilliant colour.

Even after 20 years, the UDHR animated video continues to be a highly effective basic tool for the defence and advocacy of the UDHR and for general work on the indivisibility and universality of human rights and human rights education.

The video presents the basis of Amnesty International's work on human rights in a form that is ideally suited for use over a variety of media.
