Enough will be co-hosting a pre-screening of the film “Watchers of the Sky” during the Human Rights Watch Film Festival in New York City on June 18 and 19, in partnership with the International Center for Transitional Justice.
The film interweaves four stories of remarkable courage, compassion, and determination, while setting out to uncover the forgotten life of Raphael Lemkin—the man who created the word "genocide" and believed the law could protect the world from mass atrocities. Inspired by Samantha Power’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book, A Problem From Hell, Watchers of the Sky explores holding to account those who commit genocide and other atrocity crimes. It takes viewers on a provocative journey from Nuremberg to The Hague, from Bosnia to Darfur, from criminality to justice, and from apathy to action. The film has received the Editing Award and Special Jury Award for Use of Animation US Documentary, Sundance Film Festival 2014 Courtesy of Music Box Films.
Tickets to the pre-screening are open to the general public, and the event will be followed by a discussion with filmmaker Edet Belzberg and Richard Dicker, Director, International Justice Program at Human Rights Watch. Watchers of the Sky will open theatrically in October 2014.
