4 Films for Peace

In light of the tragic developments currently unfolding in Gaza, Israel and the Middle East, we have decided to release our feature documentary WAR AND JUSTICE about the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague together with the Palestinian-Israeli TRILOGY OF HOPE. The four films, linked by a series of dramatic and unexpected events, began in the Palestinian town of Jenin in the West Bank when a 12-year-old boy was killed by Israeli soldiers. Despite his deep grief, the father Ismael Khatib donates his son’s organs to Israeli children, thus setting an example of peace.

All four films tell of people who tried to break the vicious circle of violence.

For as plausible and compelling as the arguments may be for a society or a community of states to opt for war as a last resort, it risks laying the future of generations in ruins. The award-winning documentary WAR AND JUSTICE will be released in German cinemas on June 6. The film will be screened in the presence of Luis Moreno Ocampo, the first Chief Prosecutor of the ICC and Herta Däubler Gmelin (former German Minister of Justice) followed by a live Q&A. The Q&A will be broadcast worldwide as VOD.

“Why we should always be prepared to rethink our attitude to war.”

WAR AND JUSTICE

DIRECTORS CUT IN DOLBY 5.1 UND 2K/DCP

WAR AND JUSTICE is a fascinating documentary that tells the 25-year history of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in its mission to end the most serious crimes against humanity. In recent years, the ICC has made a name for itself by issuing an arrest warrant against President Putin. On October 7, 2023, Hamas carries out a horrific massacre of Israeli civilians. Israel responds with the largest offensive on the Gaza Strip to date. ICC Chief Prosecutor Karim Khan travels to the Middle East and announces that he will prosecute all kinds of war crimes on both sides. On April 28, the New York Times reports that the ICC may issue arrest warrants against Hamas leaders, as well as Prime Minister Benahmen Netanyahu, in the coming days over the ongoing Gaza war. WAR AND JUSTICE centers on Karim Khan, the current Chief Prosecutor, and Argentine lawyer Luis Moreno-Ocampo, who was appointed the ICC’s first Chief Prosecutor in 2003 and whose case against the junta in his country was the subject of the Oscar-nominated feature film “ARGENTINA: 1985”.
