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

My favorite DVD of all time
3 February 2014 | by (California) – See all my reviews

This DVD made me laugh at the same time it made me cry and made my blood boil. This is Toto pulling the curtain exposing the Wizard of Oz! You just have to gasp when you see the pathetic baseness of the esteemed diplomats and plutocrats who are running the U.N. and the world. This is a DVD you can never forget! You get a very good idea of the DVD from watching the trailer. Avi Horowitz and his camera crew gain access to U.N. dignitaries, and capture on film their responses to questions that perhaps no one else has asked them. Equally interesting is his portrait of U.N. "blue helmets" collecting big salaries while enjoying the beach, and "the locals." After seeing this DVD, you will want to pull the plug on the farce and waste of money called the United Nations.
