This Outreach produced documentary depicts the Tribunal’s historic role in the prosecution of wartime sexual violence. It explores the investigation and adjudication of the pioneering cases that played a major role in developing jurisprudence on wartime sexual violence, and portrays the courage of the survivors of sexual violence who testified in the Tribunal’s trials. With the participation of ICTY judges and senior staff, both past and present, as well as assorted witness testimonies, the film will be a lasting reminder of the pioneering steps that the Tribunal has taken to punish those responsible and to bring these grave crimes to attention of the international community and the people of the region of the former Yugoslavia.
The public screening will be followed by an expert panel discussion between Elena Martin Salgado, Appeals Counsel from the ICTY’s Office of the Prosecutor; Gordana Duvnjak, Open Society Institute Macedonia Executive Board Chairperson; and Uranija Pirovska, Executive Director of the Helsinki Committee for Human Rights Macedonia. Moreover, Kim Mehmeti, writer and political analyst will take part in the panel discussion in Skopje while Snežana Lupevska, journalist and producer, will be among the panelists in Tetovo.
The documentary forms part of the Tribunal’s efforts to raise awareness and understanding of the crimes committed during the conflicts on the former Yugoslavia, and the ICTY’s achievements in punishing those responsible.
