Directed by Academy Award® Winner Ross Kauffman and Emmy Award® Nominee Katy Chevigny, E-TEAM follows the high-stakes work of four fiercely intrepid human rights investigators who are the first on the ground in countries like Syria and Libya to record and expose human rights violations in the midst of devastating wars. Anna, Ole, Fred and Peter are four members of the Emergencies Team - or E-Team - a division of a respected, international human rights group, that arrives on the ground soon after allegations of human rights abuse surface to uncover crucial evidence to determine if further investigation is warranted, and if so, to investigate, document, and capture the world’s attention. They also move quickly to challenge the responsible decision makers and hold them accountable.

Join E-TEAM directors Katy Chevigny and Ross Kauffman, along with Anna Neistat, Ole Solvang and international human rights lawyer Sarah Knuckey, in a screening of the film, followed by a conversation about human rights crises around the world and the fearless spirit of those fighting to bring justice.
