The Reckoning keeps you on the edge of your seat as you follow charismatic International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutor, Luis Moreno-Ocampo, issue arrest warrants for the rebel leaders of the Lord's Resistance Army in Uganda, put Congolese warlords on trial, charge the President of Sudan with genocide and war crimes in Darfur, and challenge the U.N. Security Council to have him arrested for the atrocities he has committed. Moreno-Ocampo's job is tireless and frustrating; he has a mandate but no police force. At every turn, he must pressure the international community to muster the political clout to act against the genocide in Darfur.

The Reckoning is the story of two moving and powerful dramasÑthe horrors of the genocide in Darfur and the prosecution of those who committed them and the ICC's fight for justice in its start-up years. Will this tiny court in The Hague be able to tame international conflict zones with very little political clout? Will Moreno-Ocampo succeed?

Join us for light refreshments and a discussion with Mohamed Suleiman, a native of Darfur, following the screening.
