The Uncondemned

UNA NY Chapter

Friday, January 13, 2017
In our first Screening the Issues presentation for 2017, THE UNCONDEMNED, four women speak about the difficulty and power of being witnesses. Godeliève Mukasarasi, Serafina Mukakinani, Victoire Mukambanda and Cecile Mukarugwiza are the women who appear in this searing yet uplifting film by award-winning journalist Michele Mitchell and co-director Nick Louvel.

Their documentary recounts the trial of Jean-Paul Akayesu, the first person to be convicted of genocide and using rape as a weapon of war during the 1994 Rwandan genocide. 

Mitchell and Louvel round-up an impressive set of witnesses and survivors, who tell their tale of making an uncertain way through the first genocide trial in history, because there was no one else to do it, and their success changed the world of criminal justice forever.

Please join us for this special screening of THE UNCONDEMNED, which received a sold-out, official premiere unveiling at the UN last fall. Our guest this evening will be film's director, award-winning investigative reporter Michele Mitchell, who will discuss the film.
