The Trials of Henry Kissinger (Full Documentary)

Part contemporary investigation and part historical inquiry, documentary follows the quest of one journalist in search of justice. The film focuses on Christopher Hitchens’ charges against Henry Kissinger as a war criminal – allegations documented in Hitchens’ book of the same title – based on his role in countries such as Cambodia, Chile, and Indonesia. Kissinger’s story raises profound questions about American foreign policy and highlights a new era of human rights. Increasing evidence about one man’s role in a long history of human rights abuses leads to a critical examination of American diplomacy through the lens of international standards of justice. Written by Sujit R. Varma

The film focuses on Henry Kissinger and his role in America’s secret bombing of Cambodia in 1969, the approval of Indonesia’s genocidal assault on East Timor in 1975, the assassination of a Chilean general in 1970, and his involvement in the 1969 Paris peace talks concerning the Vietnam Conflict. Written by Fiona Kelleghan (Excerpt from website)

“That this man could operate at such a horrible level and not get exposed, for year after year after year after year. How many people came out against him? It’s an embarrassment to my profession. I got to tell you, the dark side of Henry Kissinger is very, very dark.” –Seymour Hersh

“Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.”― Henry Kissinger
