Over the past couple of months, we’ve worked to draw attention to the film "The Reckoning: The Battle for the International Criminal Court" because we think it serves as an excellent tool for informing audiences about the important work of the world’s first permanent international court. If you’ve missed it (or if you’ve seen it and you want to meet some of the people involved in creating the film and the Court), check out a screening of the film hosted tomorrow night by the Culture Project in New York. The screening is part of the Culture Project’s Blueprint for Accountability event series that poses the important question, "How can we empower ourselves to hold our leaders – in government, education and corporate institutions – accountable for the events of the past and the conditions of the future?" After the film, director Pamela Yates, Christine Chung, a former senior prosecutor at the ICC, and Paul Van Zyl, co-founder of the International Center for Transitional Justice, will take part in a panel discussion and answer questions from the audience.
The screening will take place tomorrow August 4th at 7p.m. at Judson Memorial Church (55 Washington Square South/Thompson St.) in New York City. To purchase tickets, click here.
