The Reckoning

The Reckoning follows International Criminal Court Prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo and his team for three years across four continents as he issues arrest warrants for Lord's Resistance Army leaders in Uganda, puts Congolese warlords on trial, shakes up the Colombian justice system, and charges Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir with genocide in Darfur, challenging the UN Security Council to arrest him. Building cases against genocidal criminals presents huge challenges, and the prosecutor has a mandate but no police force.

The Open Society Institute held a screening of The Reckoning, followed by a discussion with the film’s director, Pamela Yates, and producer, Paco de Onis, as well as Jim Goldston, executive director of the Open Society Justice Initiative and former coordinator of prosecutions and senior trial attorney at the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court.
