About the Film
Inspired by Samantha Power’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book, A Problem From Hell, Academy-Award-nominated filmmaker Edet Belzberg brings viewers to once inaccessible places and introduces indelible characters—all of them working to fight one of history’s most incorrigible realities. The film interweaves four modern stories while uncovering the forgotten life of Raphael Lemkin, the tenacious lobbyist who created the word “genocide,” and believed the law could protect the world from mass atrocities. Watchers of the Sky takes the viewer on an unforgettable journey, from Nuremberg to Rwanda, from Bosnia to Darfur; and perhaps most importantly, from apathy to action.
Producer Kerry Propper
Kerry Propper has been on board as producer and visionary of Watchers of the Sky since its conception in 2005. He is the founder of “The Watchers of the Sky” Initiative, a foundation dedicated to educating people about genocide and humanitarian challenges.
Kerry serves on the Executive Board of Voices of Rwanda, a non-profit organization dedicated to filming and preserving the testimony of survivors of the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. He is working to raise awareness about the current genocide of the Yazidi population in Iraq and lobbying the UN Security Council to refer the case to the ICC.
