Watchers of the Sky
Available on Prime Video, Tubi TV, Plex
With the provocative question, “Why is the killing of a million a lesser crime than the killing of an individual?” Raphael Lemkin changed the course of history. An extraordinary testament to human perseverance and the tireless fight against tyranny, the Sundance award-winning film Watchers of the Sky examines the legacy of Lemkin - the Polish-Jewish lawyer and visionary who coined the term "genocide" and set the stage for the creation of the International Criminal Court - and a passionate group of modern-day activists, including US Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power, who are still fighting against all odds for accountability and peace on a world stage today.
