The Uncondemned

by Michele Mitchell and Nick Louvel

The Uncondemned film poster
Runtime: 85′

This 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 was 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.
