'The Uncondemned'

When: Fri., Nov. 3, 7:30 p.m. 2017

In 1997, a group of lawyers and activists in Rwanda achieved something that had never been done before: They prosecuted rape as a crime against humanity. The 2015 documentary The Uncondemned tells their story, along with those of the women who overcame fear and shame to testify. “If you want to understand how these ordinary rural women, who lived without electricity or running water, changed international law,” writes the Los Angeles Times, “The Uncondemned gives you the best seat in the house.” The film’s codirector, Michele Mitchell (pictured), is on hand for an audience Q&A following the screening, presented as part of White River Indie Festival’s WRIF 365 series.

Price: $8-10.
