Documentary film is a very powerful medium in the field of global justice. It can document human rights violations, proof 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 (VU Amsterdam) and Dr. Sofia Stolk (VU Amsterdam/Asser Institute) invite you to explore the connection between justice, documentary film, truth and evidence with a focus on two films in the Camera Justitia competition: Theatre of Violence and Iron Butterflies.
The seminar equips you to critically watch, assess, and discuss what these films communicate and how this is achieved.
The Seminar Global Justice Cinema is part of the Camera Justitia day. Access to the seminar is only possible with a Camera Justice Day combi-ticket.
