The Cariboo Regional District Williams Lake Library will show the National Film Board movie Prosecutor on Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 7 p.m. in the library program room.
In her introduction to the film, area librarian Caroline Derksen says Prosecutor is a fascinating story with extraordinary inside access, following the chief prosecutor through the first trials of the newly formed International Criminal Court.
Luis Moreno-Ocampo investigates and prosecutes some of the world’s worst criminals for some of the world’s worst crimes.
He’s a hero to genocide survivors, but has bitter enemies on both the right and the left political fronts.
Prosecutor offers front-row seats to the historic events that will determine whether the ICC is a groundbreaking new weapon for global justice or just an idealistic dream.
The film is based in part on the book: The Sun Climbs Slow: The International Criminal Court and the Struggle for Justice by Erna Paris.
