There is a crucial new focus on the International Rule of Law - with the intention of bringing war criminals everywhere to justice.
Through the years, as a documentary filmmaker I have focused my camera on corners of the world where citizens live in fear of tyrants daily. It was dangerous work, and I too learnt how it feels to live in fear, to have a gun at your head, to receive death threats. I did it because it was important to bring back the voices of the voiceless. It was not much, but it was all that could be done.
Little did I know how resilient and ceaseless these voices cries for justice would be.
In 2002 the International Criminal Court was set up, resurrecting the vision that died after Nuremberg's promise of 'never again'.
