Storyline

When atrocities are committed in countries held hostage by ruthless dictators, Human Rights Watch sends in the E-Team (Emergencies Team), a collection of fiercely intelligent individuals hired to document war crimes and report them to the rest of the world. Within this volatile climate, filmmakers Ross Kauffman and Katy Chevigny take us to the frontline in Syria and Libya, where shrapnel, bullet holes, and unmarked graves provide mounting evidence of coordinated attacks conducted by Bashar al-Assad and the now-deceased Muammar Gaddafi. The crimes are rampant, random, and often undocumented, making E-Team's effort to get information out of the country and into the hands of media outlets and criminal courts all the more necessary. Written by Sundance Film Festival

An Important Look Behind the Scenes

When atrocities are committed in countries held hostage by ruthless dictators, Human Rights Watch sends in the E-Team (Emergencies Team), a collection of fiercely intelligent individuals hired to document war crimes and report them to the rest of the world.

Many people, perhaps even most people, have heard of Human Rights Watch, but few probably know what they do. You might think they just compile data and report on violations of human rights. That would be partially right. They also go into the danger zones that few others would go to, and actually see the shallow graves left behind from nasty dictators.

Although not perfect, this documentary really opens up the inner workings of Human Rights Watch, and puts a light on Assad that seems to be lacking. (Ever since the rise of the Islamic State, Assad is no longer the biggest bad guy of the Middle East.) He is no saint, and this shows us that.
