Event Description

For over a year, the filmmaker followed the most unlikely President of the United Nations General Assembly, Father Miguel D’Escoto Brockmann – a Nicarguan priest, a revolution theologian, an advocate of the developing world, a reformer. With a front row to how the UN dealt with some of the most severe crises to have rocked the world in recent years, the programme reveals how D’Escoto tried to change things, and sheds light on the UN’s opaque mechanisms. We show how in the only global government we have, the best intentions are thwarted, but also the dysfunction, the pettiness, and the power dynamics that have over time rendered progress impossible.
