XXX. 2015 Black International Cinema Berlin

Three years filming in ten different countries were required to make "War Against Women", the most ambitious documentary ever filmed about the use of rape as a weapon of war. A quieted and ignored topic to date, which makes victims impossible to be consoled and allows criminals to go unpunished.

XXX. 2015 Black International Cinema Berlin XXX. 2015 Black International Cinema Berlin

Drei Jahre Dreharbeiten in zehn verschiedenen Ländern wurden benötigt, um "War Against Women" herzustellen, der ambitionierteste Dokumentarfilm, der jemals über den Einsatz von Vergewaltigungen als Kriegswaffe gedreht wurde. Ein bis heute tabuisiertes und ignoriertes Thema, was es für die Opfer unmöglich macht, Heilung zu finden, und den Tätern erlaubt, ungestraft zu bleiben.
