FILM | Free Favourites at Four presents Prosecutor
For those of you with some time off, or shortened 'summer hours' at work, the NFB Mediatheque presents an afternoon screening of Barry Stevens' 2010 documentary, Prosecutor. This film is partly based on Erna Paris' book The Sun Climbs Slow: The International Criminal Court and the Struggle for Justice. The question of how to bring powerful figures to justice for heinous crimes against humanity is the crux of this film, and its narrative and follows the International Criminal Court's first trials via the Chief Prosecutor, Luis Moreno-Ocampo.
