The Reckoning: The Battle for the International Criminal Court


The Reckoning
presented by
Orange County for Darfur
Amnesty International, Irvine chapter

The Reckoning: The Battle for the International Criminal Court is an epic, nail-biting account of the new International Criminal Court's struggle to prosecute perpetrators — however powerful or concealed they may be — of crimes against humanity as the Court fights to establish its own credibility on the world stage.

Established by treaty in 2002 in response to the mass atrocities that stained the late 20th century, the International Criminal Court (known as the ICC) is the first permanent international criminal court created to seek justice for victims of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Join us for this free screening and discussion about justice in Darfur. 

The worst crimes, a lot of them go unpunished...  And the question that animates the chord is, does humanity have the possibility of doing better than this?

-  Christine Chung, Senior Trial Attorney, ICC
