Award-winning documentary screens Wednesday at SIFF Film Center

Filmmaker and journalist Michele Mitchell will be in Seattle on Wednesday for a 6 p.m. screening at SIFF Film Center (305 Harrison St.) of the documentary she co-directed, produced, and wrote. 

"The Uncondemned," is part courtroom thriller, and part human drama, as it tells the story of a group of lawyers and activists who fought to make rape a crime of war, along with the Rwandan women that agreed to testify in a mid-1990s case.

The documentary had its world premiere at the Hamptons International Film Festival in 2015, and also screened at New York's Human Rights Watch Film Festival. 

Mitchell, a political anchor at CNN Headline News turned investigative reporter on PBS's Now with Bill Moyers, previously worked as the director, producer, writer, and co-executive producer of "Haiti: Where Did the Money Go?" After the screening, Mitchell will be part of a question-and-answer session.
