Summary

  • This documentary follows the International Criminal Court and its chief prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo. See how his team prepares a case and learn how he and others at the ICC understand their role and goals. Learn about the operations of the ICC, and how it grapples with issues of legitimacy and jurisdiction in a world dominated by nation-states. The film covers the preparation and presentation of the case against a Congo rebel commander, the question of whether ICC should compete with Libya over jurisdiction of Gaddafi's son, and Moreno-Ocampo's reluctance to claim jurisdiction over alleged Israeli crimes in Palestine.
