Film Synopsis: E-Team

Director: Katy Chevigny, Ross Kauffman | Countries of production: United States | Year: 2014 | Length: 88 min
Language: English, Arabic, French, German, Russian with English subtitles | Age: 15+ years

When atrocities are committed in countries held hostage by ruthless dictators, Human Rights Watch sends in the E-Team (Emergencies Team), who document war crimes and report them to the world.

Within this volatile climate, award-winning filmmakers Ross Kauffman and Katy Chevigny take us to the front lines in Syria and Libya, where shrapnel, bullet holes, and unmarked graves provide mounting evidence of atrocities by government forces. The crimes are rampant, random, and often unreported — making the E-Team’s effort to get information out of the country and into the hands of media outlets, policy makers, and international tribunals even more necessary.

This film was supported by the Bertha Film Fund.
