ZERO IMPUNITY

by Nicolas Blies, Stéphane Hueber-Blies and Marion Guth
Webdocumentary
 
SYNOPSIS

ZERO IMPUNITY is a transmedia project of investigation and activism to end impunity for sexual violence in the current armed conflicts. By deciphering power plays, power relations and judicial failures within states and major institutions, ZERO IMPUNITY reveals why such sexual violence is so rarely condemned.

At the heart of ZERO IMPUNITY, 6 investigative reports question the failures within the major international institutions and states making it impossible to fight against sexual violence. Through exclusive testimonies from alert launchers, victims of sexual violence but also assailants, these investigations plunge us into the mechanisms of impunity at work within the UN and the ICC, or in Ukraine, Syria, the United States and France. As of January 3, 2017, the 6 investigations will be progressively published, one by one, by an international media consortium and on the zeroimpunity.com website.

 

In partnership with Change.org, each investigation is extended by a petition formulating concrete demands, to move the lines. This action campaign will be amplified by the implementation of an innovative digital activism tool: the first 3D interactive march. From March 27, 2017, each signature will be translated into a 3D spokesperson, in real time, and will become an impacting tool of engagement and viralization. This new form of digital activism will take on an urban guerilla dimension, thanks to video projections on facades in strategic spaces.

Finally in September, 2017, the documentary animation film ZERO IMPUNITY (70′) will conclude the ZERO IMPUNITY transmedia project. Through a cinematographic approach and an original production, the film highlights the words of the victims while putting into perspective the stakes of a sclerotic international justice.
