The Prosecutors

Sun 22 September @ 7:30 pm

- Free – £8

Through personal testimonies and footage of courtroom proceedings, The Prosecutors documents three lawyers’ fight to end impunity for sexual violence committed at times of war. It explores, with respect and determination, what it takes for victims to obtain justice and celebrates the bravery of those who come forward, while demanding a wider framework of accountability.

BEYOND THE SCREEN
Join us after the film to explore the work being done at an international level to establish a legal framework for the prosecution of crimes of sexual violence in conflict – and the key role played by women in campaigning and legislating for change. We will be joined at both screenings by Olaoluwa Abagun (Founder & Executive Director, Girl Pride Circle Initiative, Nigeria) and representatives from Scotland’s women’s sector working for feminist justice systems.

Presented in association with Engender.
