The Project

Justice in Action

Mulberry School for Girls is a high achieving, over-subscribed and very successful girls’ comprehensive school in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets for pupils aged 11 to 18. Students’ experiences at Mulberry are greatly enriched through the global dimension of their education. Our students thus learn what it is to be a global citizen of our diverse and rapidly changing world.

As part of our global education, six young women from Mulberry School embarked on a journey to explore the turbulent history of Bosnia, the site of Europe’s worst genocide since the Second World War. They then went to The Hague, to sit in on the trial of the man accused of masterminding these crimes – the war time leader of the Bosnian Serbs, Dr Radovan Karadzic. They documented this journey through a film which explores what justice really means to those who want it most. In their quest for truth these young women explore the path to peace and reconciliation and what role it plays in the lives of the survivors.

The young women came away from this experience with a sense of personal responsibility for the stories that they heard – to ensure that the voices of the survivors are heard widely so that genocide never happens again. Through this film they aim to demonstrate that through the power of storytelling we can make a change and work towards spreading peace and prosperity across the world.

    This is a powerful and moving documentary film that must be watched by all. It portrays the true meaning of what justice really means and opens up your eyes to what justice really is. The film captures the deep pain and great damage that was endured in Bosnia during the war and still enduring after 20 years. Well done to Fiona Lloyds Davis and all the girls in making this great documentary. I hope this film makes it to the mainstream channels as this documentary will also highlight the plight of the civilians in Syria too.
