The Dictator Hunter | 2006
Reed Brody hunts dictators for a living as a lawyer with Human Rights Watch. For seven years, Brody has been chasing one ex-dictator in particular: Hissene Habre, the former leader of Chad, who is charged with killing thousands of his own countrymen in the eighties. We follow Brody over the course of a year as he travels through Africa, Europe and the United States. He conducts diplomacy like he plays chess--the game pieces are the politicians, journalists and judges that Brody positions against his opponent.
