This international documentary documents and questions 70 years of war rape, enslavement and sexual tortures from 2d World War time period in Japan, Germany, Italy, to more recent conflict zones in Former Yugoslavia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda. Mass rapes used as a “collateral” weapon of war are destroying whole generations of women, men and children. In the last 30 years it has become a strategic weapon aimed at mass destruction used ever more widely in every new war zone. This is the taboo history of a collective and perverted male weapon associated to crime against humanity. Ten years after the UN created the International day against sexual violence in conflict ( celebrated on 19th June yearly) this film asks why international justice has failed in the fight against impunity. A question which resonates in the public debate with the recent two Peace Nobel price winners Denis Mukwege and Nadia Murad.
In light of the International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict (June 19th)
