Description

With the former Yugoslavia as a backdrop, this film exposes the hidden crime of rape in wartime. The film includes interviews with four women who were victims of rape in Bosnia. These interviews, as well as archival footage from Nuremburg, Nanking,and Rwanda, are interspersed with images of Western art and culture, which have romanticized, eroticized and legitimized the rape of women. The film also follows the first attempt by an international court to try a defendant for rape as a crime of war.
