    • Synopsis
    • Habré’s arrest in Sénégal, in 2013, was a decisive breakthrough in a 23-year struggle pitting the ex-tyrant against survivors. The documentary will give voice to the victims who have shown that, with courage and obstinacy, it is possible to bring a dictator to justice. They want justice making sure that those who committed crimes do not go unpunished. It’s a universal story which aims at putting words on untold stories marked in victims’ skin, who still wonder how it is still possible to live after having been through monstrous events. The judgment due for autumn 2015 will be a Historical moment for African justice. It’s a film also about Africa and its relationship with the rest of the world...
