From directors Michele Mitchell and Nick Louvel comes the 2015 documentary, The Uncondemned. The film focuses on a group of international lawyers and their unprecedented fight to try war criminals for their crimes against Rwandan women during the 1994 genocide.
The film screens first at SIFF Film Center on Wednesday, January 11 at 6pm, and again on Thursday, January 12 at Pickford Film Center in Bellingham at 6:30pm. As an added bonus, director, co-producer and writer Michele Mitchell will be in attendance at both screenings. Smarthouse Creative has this to say about the film:
“The Uncondemned” tells 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 thes tories 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.
