Trailerama: War Don Don

Following years of civil war, Sierra Leone seeks some kind of reconciliation through a specially convened war crimes tribunal. At the heart of the trial is Issa Sesay, a member of the Revolutionary United Front accused of war crimes ranging from use of child soldiers to sexual violence. Rebecca Richman Cohen‘s film isn’t just a real courtroom thriller. It also asks questions about whether the international community is truly prepared to find justice when the crimes are beyond belief. Screening at this year’s SXSW Film Festival.
