A screening of D?Arusha à Arusha (From Arusha to Arusha, 114 min., France / Canada / Rwanda 2008) by French filmmaker Christophe Gargot, which looks at the international tribunal of the major offenders in the genocide and civil war in Rwanda that took place in Arusha, Tanzania from 1995. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director.
More on D?Arusha à Arusha:
International criminal justice can be traced back to the Nuremberg trials of Nazi leaders after World War II. Since November 1994, the United Nations has tasked the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) in Arusha, Tanzania, with judging the perpetrators of the Rwandan genocide—the massacre of nearly a million people, mainly Tutsis, that was played out before a mute international audience. How does international justice transcend its political foundations? What does it mean to try in the name of a universal conscience? D?Arusha à Arusha uses ICTR archive footage and original interviews to examine the workings of judicial diplomacy.
