Starr Forum: The Uncondemned

Building 6, 120
182 MEMORIAL DR (REAR), Cambridge, MA 02139

Film screening

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 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.

Co-sponsors:  MIT Center for International Studies, MIT-AFRICA
