Movie Info

From Katy Chevigny (Deadline, Election Day) and Ross Kauffman (Academy Award-winner, Born into Brothels), E-TEAM follows the high-stakes investigative work of four fiercely intrepid human rights workers-Anna Neistat, Ole Solvang, Peter Bouckaert and Fred Abrahams-offering a rare look at their lives at home and dramatic work in the field. As members of the Emergencies Team (or E-Team), a division of a respected, international human rights group, they arrive on the ground soon after allegations of human rights abuses surface, investigating and uncovering crucial evidence in order to document those crimes and capture the world's attention. They also immediately challenge the responsible decision makers, holding them accountable. (C) Neftlix

"E-Team" has a ripped-from-the-headlines immediacy as it takes the viewer on an intense ride-along with Human Rights Watch investigators.

Exciting, absorbing and stubbornly optimistic in the face of overwhelming devastation, "E-Team" will, with any luck, shed deserved light on the routine sacrifices these activists and professionals make for the sake of human values.

This threatens to become yet another film about white Americans and Europeans telling the stories of Third World people. But the rest of the film does much to redeem that dubious trope ...

A documentary that purports to chronicle the sober and urgent work of those who ferret out human-rights abuses, but instead plays like a portrait of a rather glamorous marriage.

It's a comprehensive portrayal of these people's personal and professional lives. We see what makes them tick. Are they adrenaline junkies? Thrill-seekers? Not at all.

Audience Reviews for E-Team

A documentary that uses global issues to focus on four unique individuals, and what it takes to go into these environments. When it's focused on that, it works best. Of course, I cared about the issues affecting the people the E-Team represented, but I've seen some really great documentaries that go into more detail about these. What works better here is the investigation into what makes a person want to be on the E-Team, how does this affect their family, and their pyschological health. This is where the film best succeeds.

11/3/14. Netflix Interesting story about a much needed organization but really difficult to follow and a somewhat dis jointed story. Have seen much better docs.
