This trilogy starts with the screening of the Trial of Ratko Mladić by Henry Singer et Rob Miller at the 17th International Film festival and Forum for Human Rights.
Twenty years ago, Europe discovered the shocking images of concentration camps and mass graves in the former Yugoslavia. In 2012, the international trial of the Bosnian Serb general Ratko Mladić, accused of having led the siege of Sarajevo and being responsible for the 1995 Srebrenica genocide, begins in The Hague. Shot over five years, this film takes us behind the scenes of the trial.
The film will be followed by a debate.
