Movie screening: The Court

Lawyers for Liberty, together with KOMAS and Bar Council will be hosting a film screening of ‘The Court’.

The movie “The Court” is told from the point of view of the office of the prosecutor.

In the style of a courtroom thriller Michele Gentile and Marcus Vetter (The Tunnel, The Heart of Jenin) follow Ocampo during an inordinately complex juridical process which is given a face during the course of the film. And when Angelina Jolie together with 93 year old Ben Ferencz, former prosecutor from the Nuremberg trials, are travelling to the final hearing in the trial of the Congolese general, Thomas Lubanga Dyilo, to help persuading the world community that recruiting child soldiers is a crime against humanity, the message is heard by millions of people all around the world.
