'Weapon of War' wint Amnesty International Award
Op de zevende editie van het Planet Doc Review Filmfestival in Warschau, Polen, is de documentaire Weapon of War van regisseurs Ilse en Femke van Velzen, tevens vertoond op het Movies that Matter Festival 2010, onderscheiden met de Amnesty International Award.
Het commentaar van de jury:
"The Jury recognizes the subtlety with which the film portrays the crime of rape committed on thousands of women in the wartime Republic of Congo. The film is a stirring record of a reconciliation process, in which the camera plays an essential part. The filmmakers go beyond mere description of the crimes, searching for solutions that would allow the victims and perpetrators to reclaim their sense of dignity."
