1. His legs are crossed, his cell clamped between shoulder and right ear, the arm of his glasses between his lips. He speaks rapid English with an Argentinian accent. He repeatedly asks: is the fair treatment of Gaddafi guaranteed? He talks with the rebel leader of Libya. In the 1980s, Luise Moreno Ocampo was a prosecutor at the Argentine trial of leaders of the military regime. Film maker Michele Gentile and Marcus Vetter are following Ocampo six years after his appointment as the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court in The Hague. They are travelling with him to Libya as arrest warrants are issued for Saif Al Islam Gaddafi, and take part in negotiations with a Palestinian delegation when discussions as to whether Palestine should be recognised by the ICC as a state are held; this is a prerequisite for prosecuting Israel and Hamas for war crimes in the Gaza War. Moreno-Ocampo and his associates obviously harbour grand political ideals; they seek to break the cycle of intrastate retaliation and revenge, and replace it with the degree of justice commonly applied at a national level. However, they are themselves often the targets of international criticism, especially with the latest “Kony 2012” when 100 Million viewers watched a video on youtube that aims to raise support for the arrest of warlord Joseph Kony and set a precedent for international justice. The film is shot in the style of a court-house thriller - often behind normally closed doors. It accompanies Ocampo and his team along a highly complex juridical process. Its language, virtually impenetrable to laymen, gains a face during the course of the film. And when Hollywood star Angelina Jolie comes to the final hearing in the case of the Congolese general, Thomas Dyilo Lubanga, everybody forgets for a moment its mission of global justice.
