Watchers of the Sky

Directed by Edet Belzberg

Watchers of the Sky portrays four stories of remarkable courage, compassion and determination. In the same time the film reveals the forgotten lives of Raphael Lemkin who created even the word “genocide” and believed that law could defend the world from the mass atrocities, Benjamin Ferencz who dedicated his life to the pursuit of justice and influence the international community to stop crimes against humanity, Luis Moreno-Ocampo who spent his career seeking justice in the face of adversity and Emmanuel Uwurukundo who sought to promote human welfare. The film is inspired by Samantha Power’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book, A Problem From Hell, that takes you for a provocative journey from Nuremberg to Hague, from Bosnia to Darfur, from criminality to justice, from apathy to action.

“How many millions more must die in uniform or as innocent civilians before the time is ripe to bring criminals before the bar of Justice” – Benjamin B. Ferencz
