The Serbian Lawyer

Do those who have violated all principles of humanity deserve protection under the law? The Serbian Lawyer has this question at its heart as it examines the ongoing impact of the Bosnian genocide. Focused on the personal dilemmas faced by the lawyer tasked with defending war criminal Radavan Karadzic, this doc presents us with juxtapositions of emotion and principle, and asks us whether protection of the law should extend to its worst transgressors.
