THE ART OF ARGUMENT Documentary by MELANIE LIEBHEIT & GEREON WETZEL, 97 Min. Germany/Austria 2018

Two nations take their matter to the International Court of Justice. They have a hard-fought argument over a mass surveillance program, terrorism, and a remorseful spy. What sounds like recent reality of the spying scandal concerning Edward Snowden is a fictional setting, grounding the most important competition in international law. Representing one of these made-up nations, four young students from Germany fight as lawyers from round to round of this legal professions’ Wimbledon against the world’s best universities to reach the finals in Washington.
