Carla Del Ponte was the attorney general of Switzerland and earned a reputation as a fierce adversary of organized crime when she was given a new challenge by the United Nations -- she was asked to head up the International Criminal Tribunal For The Former Yugoslavia, an international judicial group created to deliver indictments against war criminals responsible for genocide in the former nation. Del Ponte took on the responsibility, though she soon discovered that the job would be an uphill battle -- while the Tribunal could indict and try war criminals, it was up to others to actually arrest the suspects and deliver them to the court, and with many nations (the United States among them) reluctant to take part in international justice, a number of the bloodiest figures in the "ethnic cleansing" of Serbia and Croatia still walk free. Despite this, Del Ponte has become known around the world as a woman with a fierce passion to see justice done in the Eastern Bloc. Filmmaker Marcel Schuepbach offers an in-depth portrait of a remarkable woman in La Liste de Carla, a documentary which examines the public and private faces of Del Ponte as she battles against long odds to see these criminals punished and shows the gentle, witty side that she can rarely display in public. La Liste de Carla (aka Carla's List) was screened in competition at the 2006 Locarno Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
