Camera Justitia Night at the Festival

March 02, 2017

On Thursday 30 March at 20.00 hrs the festive Camera Justitia Night will take place, hosted by Chairman of the Movies that Matter Foundation and international criminal defense lawyer Bart Stapert. The international jury will present the Camera Justitia Award to the director of the winning film. After the ceremony, we will screen the film The Verdict. This interactive courtroom thriller introduces a dilemma: Can it be justified to shoot down a civilian plane, converted by terrorists into a deadly suicide missile? At the last minute and against the explicit orders of his wing commander, a German air force pilot shoots down the airplane before it crashes into the stadium. Saving the lives of tens of thousands but killing all passengers on board he faces charges for his action in court. After the hearing of the air force pilot, the audience has to vote about the final verdict: Guilty or Not Guilty?

The Flageolettes will make sure there will be a good musical ambiance during the drinks in the foyer of Theater aan het Spui.
