Watchers of the Sky
Edet Belzberg, 2014
USA | Format: HDCam | 114 minutes

Q&A with filmmaker Edet Belzberg.

Watchers of the Sky interweaves four stories of remarkable courage, compassion, and determination, while setting out to uncover the forgotten life of Raphael Lemkin—the man who created the word “genocide” and believed the law could protect the world from mass atrocities. Inspired by Samantha Power’s Pulitzer Prize–winning book, A Problem from Hell, Watchers of the Sky takes you on a provocative journey from Nuremberg to The Hague, from Bosnia to Darfur, from criminality to justice, and from apathy to action. A Music Box Films release.

Series: Human Rights Watch Film Festival 2014

Venue: Walter Reade Theater
