Film Screening: “The Uncondemned” featuring Prof. Lisa R. Pruitt

Monday, January 30

Everson Hall Room 176, UC Davis campus
7:00 PM

Join us for a screening of “The Uncondemned,” a film documenting the legal and political path to the 1998 conviction of Jean-Paul Akayesu, the mayor of Taba Commune, Rwanda, in the first-ever conviction of rape as an act of genocide and as a crime against humanity.

UC Davis’s Professor Lisa R. Pruitt was a gender consultant to the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda in 1996 and did the initial legal analysis of the case. She appears in the critically acclaimed film. Read The Los Angeles Times review here.

This screening is co-sponsored by UC Davis School of Law and the UC Davis Human Rights Studies Program.

The film will be shown in Everson Hall Room 176. If extra seating is necessary, the School of Law’s (King Hall) Room 1001 will open for a simultaneous screening to the overflow audience.
