Alongside the short films, a high-quality book will be published and presented during the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the UDHR. Likewise based on the six themes drawn from the UDHR, it will contain the work of twelve internationally respected authors, such as:

CHIMAMANDA NGOZI ADICHIE, ASSIA DJEBAR, NURUDDIN FARAH, KHALED HOSSEINI, ELFRIEDE JELINEK, Naguib Mafuz, GABRIEL GARCIA MARQUEZ, TONI MORRISON, RUTH OZEKI, JOSE SARAMAGO, ROBERTO SAVIANO, MO YAN

Interviews with the filmmakers, images of making of as well as stills from the short movies. These and other creative contents will initiate a broad-based dialogue, raise awareness through verbal and visual contents, and empower people to claim their human rights.

The book will be published by ELECTA and distributed through national agents on a global basis.
