Int’l documentary featuring Dickinson Law professor makes US premiere

Penn State News: “The Trial of Ratko Mladic,” a 90-minute documentary that debuted at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) last November featuring Dickinson Law Professor of Law Dermot Groome, will make its U.S. premiere on Thursday, March 14 at the Dodd Center for Human Rights at University of Connecticut School of Law. It will be broadcast nationally at 9 p.m. EST, March 19 on “FRONTLINE” — PBS’ flagship investigative journalism series that explores and illuminates the critical issues of our times from business and health to social issues, politics and war. The documentary captures the essence of “The Prosecutor v. Ratko Mladic,” a five-year war crimes trial led by Groome against the Army of Republika Srpska Commander Ratko Mladic, one of the most infamous figures of the Balkan wars in the 1990s. Mladic was sentenced to life imprisonment after being convicted on Nov. 22, 2017, of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes for the 1995 Srebrenica massacre of over 7,000 Muslim men and boys; for leading the nearly four-year siege of Sarajevo, in which thousands were killed; and for the ethnic cleansing of non-Serbs from large areas of Bosnia and Herzegovina…” [h/t Pete Weiss]
