Diplomacy - the responsibility to protect

47 min.DK/Documentary

A behind-the-scenes film about the UN Security Council's diplomatic work with conflict resolution. Directors Boris Bertram and Rasmus Dinesen are the first ever to gain first-hand access to the process of high-level diplomacy, as they followed the Danish presidency of the Security Council in June 2006 - at a time where the world was facing genocide in Darfur. The film shows Danish UN diplomats - among others UN ambassador Ellen Margrethe Løj - during the nerve-wrecking month as Denmark joins the negotiations alongside Kofi Annan and others. The stakes are high, and time is running out.
