3 Films, 3 Débats: Des Procès peu Ordinaires

La trilogie ‘Des Procès peu Ordinaires’ continue avec la projection du film Le Tribunal sur le Congo de Milo Rau (2017, 100 min).

En plus de 20 ans, la guerre du Congo a déjà fait plus de 6 millions de victimes. La population souffre de cet état d’impunité totale, les crimes de guerre n’ayant pas fait l’objet de poursuites judiciaires. Pour son film, Milo Rau parvient à réunir les victimes, les bourreaux, les témoins et les experts de la guerre du Congo et à instituer un tribunal du peuple d’exception du Congo de l’Est.

La projection sera suivie d'un échange avec:

  • Camille Montavon, Assistante-doctorante, Chaire de droit pénal et criminologie, Université de Neuchâtel
  • Sévane Garibian, SNF Professeur, Faculté de droit, Université de Genève
