Global Justice Cinema Seminar

Documentary film is a very powerful medium in the field of global justice. It can document human rights violations, prove war crimes in court, or communicate a strong call for solidarity and action. But documentary filmmaking is never just a ‘neutral’ registration of reality.

In two sessions, Professor Wouter Werner and Dr. Sofia Stolk (VU Amsterdam) invite you to explore the connection between justice, documentary film, truth and evidence with a focus on the films in the Camera Justitia competition. The seminar equips you to critically watch, assess, and discuss what these films communicate and how this is achieved. 

Wouter Werner and Sofia Stolk work at the transnational law department at VU Amsterdam were they research and teach, amongst other things, on film and knowledge production in the context of international law, human rights, and world politics.

The Global Justice Cinema Seminar is part of the Camera Justitia day, which you can attend with a  Camera Justitia combi-ticket, including access to the Seminar, the Masterclass and the Camera Justitia Night. The seminar can be booked seperately only with an accreditation.

The Seminar exists of two parts. Lunch is provided in between the two parts and is included in the combination ticket.
