DIRECTOR: Larysa Kondracki - CANADA

Set in 1999, The Whistleblower is a harrowing political thriller chronicling the true story of a former Nebraska police officer named Kathy Bolkovac (Rachel Weisz) as she tackles a job as a peacekeeper working for the United Nations in Sarajevo. Arriving in post-war Bosnia expecting a well-organized international effort, she instead finds chaos and cynicism. Working for the UN’s Gender Office, which is assigned to investigate sexual assaults, she quickly stumbles into the grim realities of sex trafficking, discovering that the very people supposedly helping battle injustice and human rights abuse are, in fact, their facilitators. As she works to bring her discoveries to light, naiveté gives way to indignation and desperation. Kondracki’s hard-hitting, emotional film sheds passionate light on the horrific exploitation of women and the forces that enable abuse. (112 mins.)

First Feature Film.


Interests: New Directors, Narrative Feature.
