In the aftermath of the 1994 Rwandan genocide, the UN established the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) to prosecute individuals responsible for war crimes. The Uncondemned tells the gripping story of the ICTR’s trial of Jean-Paul Akayesu, which marked the first time in history that rape was prosecuted as a crime against humanity and also a crime of genocide. The Uncondemned follows the international team of lawyers and activists who fought to bring Akayesu to justice, and the brave Rwandan women who came forward to testify against him.
Peace is Loud has partnered with Film at 11 to run The Uncondemned’s impact campaign. We are overseeing campus and community screenings, producing educational materials for medical students and law students working with survivors of sexual violence, and providing the film as a training tool to our international partners—including women’s groups, health care providers, judicial officials, and law enforcement in countries with high rates of rape and sexual violence.
