E-TEAM Human Rights During Wartime Documentary with Dir. Ross Kauffman

vor 4 Jahren

E-Team, the Emergencies Team called in to deal with human rights crises around the world, is featured in the new documentary, E-TEAM. We look at the trailer and clips with director Ross Kauffman, and learn about Anna, Ole, Fred and Peter--the supremely brave members of the squad. War crimes and the struggle to maintain standards of decency in the face of grave humanitarian crises are confronted in the stunning documentary, which is featured in this full length BYOD episode, hosted by Ondi Timoner.

Anna, Ole, Fred and Peter are four members of the Emergencies Team — or E-Team — the most intrepid division of a respected, international human rights group. Trained to deal with unfolding crises, the E-Team flies to hotspots all over the world as soon as allegations of human rights abuse surface. Then they get to work — gathering crucial evidence to determine if further investigation is warranted and, if so, to investigate, document, and capture the world's attention. They also immediately challenge the responsible decision makers, holding them accountable. Human rights abuses thrive on secrecy and silence, and the work of the E-Team, backed by their international human rights organization, has shone light in dark places and given voice to thousands whose stories would never otherwise have been told.

Ross Kauffman is the Academy Award winning director, producer, cinematographer and co-editor of BORN INTO BROTHELS, winner of the Oscar® for Best Documentary 2005. The film also won the Emmy for Best Documentary 2005, and was accepted to over 50 film festivals worldwide and has since received over 40 awards, including National Board of Review Best Documentary 2004, LA Film Critics Best Documentary 2004 and the 2004 Sundance Film Festival Audience Award.

Katy Chevigny is an award-winning filmmaker and a co-founder of Big Mouth Productions and Arts Engine. Prior to co-directing E-TEAM, She directed ELECTION DAY (2007) which premiered at the South By Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival in 2007 and was broadcast on PBS in 2008. With Kirsten Johnson, she co-directed DEADLINE, an investigation into Illinois Governor George Ryan's commutation of death sentences. After premiering at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival, DEADLINE was broadcast on NBC to an audience of over six million, in an unusual acquisition of an independent film by a major network. It was nominated for an Emmy Award and won the Thurgood Marshall Journalism Award, among others. Her producing credits include ARCTIC SON, INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY, NUYORICAN DREAM, BROTHER BORN AGAIN, OUTSIDE LOOKING IN: TRANSRACIAL ADOPTION IN AMERICA, PUSHING THE ELEPHANT and 1971. Chevigny’s films have been shown theatrically, on HBO, Cinemax, POV, Independent Lens, NBC, Arte/ZDF, Britain’s Channel 4, and others and have played at film festivals around the world, including Sundance, Tribeca, Full Frame, SXSW, IDFA, Sheffield and Berlin.
