U.N.MeStreaming Video - 2014
Following the horrors of World War II, there was a strong desire for a better world in which peace would be maintained and human rights respected - the U.N was born. Now, more than 60 years later, the image of the UN has become severely tarnished. Documentary filmmaker Ami Horowitz takes us on a brutal tour of a number of places where the UN has intervened. Through interviews with those involved and archive footage, we uncover facts about abuses and scandals surrounding UN missions and personnel. The 'forgotten' shooting in Côte d'Ivoire, during which UN soldiers opened fire on unarmed demonstrators; the "Oil for Food" program in Iraq; and the harrowing case of the UN soldiers who stood by, powerless, during the genocide in Rwanda, are among the stories uncovered in what the Los Angeles Times has called 'a scathing take down of the United Nations'.
