"The Uncondemned" by Michele Mitchell and Nick Louvel

22 November, 19:00

Runtime: 85'

The Uncondemned - CoverThis is the gripping and world-changing story of a group of young international lawyers and activists who fought to make rape a crime of war, and the Rwandan women who came forward to testify and win justice where there had been none. Up until this point, rape had not been prosecuted as a war crime and was committed with impunity. A courtroom thriller and personal human drama, "The Uncondemned" beautifully interweaves the stories of the characters in this odyssey, leading to the trial at an International Criminal Court--and the results that changed the world of criminal justice forever.

The film will be followed a Q&A with:

    • Patricia Viseur Sellers - International lawyer, Special Advisor to the International Criminal Court and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights,
    • Mara Marinaki - EEAS Principal Advisor on Gender and on UNSCR 1325/Women, Peace and Security,
    • Dagmar Schumacher - Director, UN Women Brussels Office.

The film is in English and has a run time of 85 minutes
