Storyline

Documentary filmmaker Ami Horowitz takes us on a brutal tour of a number of places where the UN has intervened. Through interviews with those involved - some of whom wish to remain anonymous - and archive footage, he uncovers facts about manifest abuses and scandals surrounding UN missions and personnel. Such as a "forgotten" shooting in Côte d'Ivoire, during which UN soldiers opened fire on unarmed demonstrators. Or the "Oil for Food" program in Iraq, which resulted in the wrong people reaping the benefits. Horowitz also addresses the harrowing case of the UN soldiers who stood by, powerless, during the genocide in Rwanda. Written by International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam

Powerful movie
16 June 2012 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Amy Horowitz uses humor and a sense of the absurd to highlight the morass that is now the UN due to the fact that any country, regardless of it human rights record, has an equal vote. So Syria can be on the Security Counsel and the only country to preoccupy the UN is Israel. Ami shows that in spite of the powerful things the UN can do, it is fundamentally messed up at the most basic level -- how decisions are made and how priorities are set. And it is clear what needs to be done to fix it. And we in the US have the money to force the changes. If we have the will.

Great movie. Great message. Worth the view.
