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

Entertaining and Informative
1 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought that this movie was pretty good. It opened my eyes to problems with the U.N. but did not make me think it was a completely useless organization. It was entertaining and informative and probably should be shown in University if you are taking a class specifically on the U.N. (which I did many moons ago). If after watching the preview you would want to see it then you will not be disappointed. I also liked the main guy interviewer in the film, sometimes I find them so off putting that even when I agree with the message (like with Michael Moore) I find the way they do things so annoying that I cannot watch the film and happily this was not the case here.
