Broken Promises: The United Nations at 60

Feature Documentary. Winner 2005 WorldFest-Houston International Film Festival Special Jury Remi Prize.

When the United Nations Charter was signed in 1945, it promised to “save succeeding generations from the scourge of war.”

As the United Nations turned 60, world leaders, scholars and government officials addressed the following questions:

Has the U.N. lived up to its founder’s ideals? Has the world body been successful in protecting human rights and preventing genocide? Can the organization be effective in the wake of the oil for food scandal and other internal crises?

Narrated by Ron Silver. Directed by Kevin Knoblock.
