What or who does international justice serve? In 2012 a historic trial began in The Hague, that of General Ratko Mladić, who led the siege of Sarajevo and the genocide of Srebrenica. For five years the two filmmakers did a huge job editing hundreds of hours of footage — giving voice to the victims but also to the lawyers of Mladić and his relatives.

Henry SINGER is one of the most critically acclaimed documentary filmmakers in the UK. He has won or been nominated for all the major British documentary awards, including BAFTA, the Royal Television Society, the Grierson Award, Broadcast, Broadcasting Press Guild, Televisual and Emmy. His films have been screened at festivals around the world. Among his award-winning feature films are “The Falling Man” about the photograph of someone who jumped, or perhaps fell, from the World Trade Center on September 11th, “The Untold Story of Baby P” about the death of a child of seventeen months in North London, and “The Blood of the Rose” on the brutal murder of filmmaker and conservationists Joan Root in Kenya.

Robert MILLER started his career in a human rights organization before moving on to documentary. He has over fifteen years of experience in developing and producing documentaries for the BBC and Channel Four, collaborating with Henry Singer in “Last Orders“, “On Cold Friday in November” and “The Betrayed Girls“. His television series on the care of the elderly, “Protecting Our Parents“, was described by The Radio Times as one of the most important programmes on British television and has been nominated for the Broadcast, Royal Television Society and BAFTA awards.
