“In 2010 Margot Wallström, the first UN special representative on sexual violence in war and conflict, used her mandate to lobby for a resolution, a strategic tool enabling to prosecute those responsible for committing or planning sexual violence in conflicts.

During 10 months, they shine the spotlight when rape is used as a weapon and raise the issue to the top of the UN Security Council’s agenda.” (Below) This film about Élaine Radigue is in the competitive selection in performance art.
