FULLY BOOKED Screening: U.N. Me

Screening January 9, 2012 7:00 PM

Corruption, rape, murder, genocide–all words not commonly associated with one of the most praised and visible institutions in the world, The United Nations.

In a film that exposes incompetence and corruption at the heart of the UN, filmmakers Ami Horowitz and Matthew Groff charge an organisation with failing its founding ideals. U.N. Me is a harrowing and dark exploration of how the world’s foremost humanitarian organisation has become a clubhouse for dictators, thugs, and tyrants.

Includes interviews with John Bolton, former CIA Director James Woolsey, former U.N. weapons inspector Charles Duelfer, Nobel laureate Jody Williams.

Directed by: Ami Horowitz and Matthew Groff
