University of Wisconsin–Madison

‘The Uncondemned’ film screening

Thursday, November 16

5:15 p.m.

Lubar Commons 7200, UW-Madison Law School

“The Uncondemned” tells the gripping and world-changing story of a group of young international lawyers and activists who fought to make rape a crime of war, and the Rwandan women who came forward to testify and win justice where there had been none. Up until this point, rape had not been prosecuted as a war crime and was committed with impunity. A courtroom thriller and personal human drama, “The Uncondemned” beautifully interweaves the stories of the characters in this odyssey, leading to the trial at an international criminal court–and the results that changed the world of criminal justice forever.

The screening will be immediately followed by comments from renowned journalist and author Thierry Cruvellier and Jean Geran, 4W Director for Human Rights, Child Protection and Global Policy

This event is sponsored by: Human Rights Program, International Division, Global Legal Studies Center, 4W Initiative, 4W STREETS Project.
