THE PROSECUTORS

Leslie Thomas
US 2018    54' 85'
⚬ Crime & Investigative ⚬ Human Rights 

Synopsis

Rape and pillage are concepts as old as war itself. But do we have to just tolerate sexual violence as a by-product of war? The legal framework for prosecution is changing. Globally, lawyers, governments, and civil society members are developing the important historical precedence for this effort. The film focuses on three prosecutors in Colombia, Bosnia and Congo fighting for the justice in the names of their clients.
