Mladic was one of the most infamous figures of the Bosnian war of the 1990s and was synonymous with the murder of over 7,000 Muslim men and boys in Srebrenica in 1995 -- the worst crime on European soil since World War II.  Filmed over five years with unprecedented access to the prosecution lawyers, the defence, witnesses who came to give evidence, and Mladic's supporters and family members in Bosnia, The Trial of Ratko Mladic tells an epic story of justice, accountability and a country trying to escape from its bloody past.

Post-show speakers: Peter McCloskey, the lead prosecutor in the trial of General Ratko Mladic, and Branko Lukic, Mladic’s lead defense lawyer have their first face-to-face meeting since the trial’s end to discuss the work of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, the tension between justice and reconciliation, and the future, if any, of international criminal justice.  McCloskey and Lukic tried a combined thirteen cases at the ICTY, culminating in the Mladic trial.  They will be joined on the panel by the filmmakers Rob Miller and Henry Singer.
