'Peace vs. Justice' in Brussels
As part of the One World International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival in Brussels, Movies that Matter co-hosts a screening of the film Peace vs Justice on Thursday 23 May at 19.00 hrs. The film critically observes the role of the International Criminal Court in the trial against rebel leader Joseph Kony, whose Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) has spread death and destruction in Uganda for nearly twenty years now.
After this free screening, the audience will have a chance to ask their questions to Martien Schotsmans (director of the NGO RCN Justice & Démocratie), Niccolò Figà Talamanca (secretary general of No Peace Without Justice) and Jean-Philippe Kot (head of the international justice programme of Avocats Sans Frontières). This debate will focus on how miscommunication and different conceptions of justice partly explain why Joseph Kony is still walking free. Please sign up here.
