Movie Info

Filmmaker Pamela Yates follows charismatic International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo as he fights to make powerful perpetrators pay for their reprehensible crimes against humanity and struggles to ensure that the ICC emerges as a powerful and effective means of fighting for human rights in this documentary shot over three years and across four continents. Created in the waning days of the 20th century as a response to the increasing number of horrific atrocities across the globe, the ICC was conceived by more than 60 countries. Its primary goal is to holding those responsible for war crimes and genocide accountable for their crimes, and the man leading this fight from the front-lines is Moreno-Ocampo. In this film, viewers are given the unique opportunity of following Moreno-Ocampo and his team to Uganda as they issue arrest warrants for Lord's Resistance Army leaders, convince the U.N. Security Council to assist in indicting Sudan's president for the Darfus Massacres, jolt the Columbian justice system, and ensure that Congolese warlords get their day in court. But while Moreno-Ocampo may have a well-defined mandate, he and the ICC have no official police force. Determined to make up for this by rallying the international community to lend some political clout, Moreno-Ocampo and his team in the Hague work to forge a new paradigm for justice.
