From the Academy award-winning team who brought us BORN INTO BROTHELS, comes E-TEAM. Anna, Ole, Fred and Peter, four members of the Emergencies Team -- or E-Team – the boots on the ground division of a respected, international human rights group. Arriving as soon as possible after allegations of human rights abuse surface, the E-Team uncovers crucial evidence to determine if further investigation is warranted and, if so, to investigate, document, and capture the world’s attention.
Using a cinema verite approach, the filmmakers’ camera embeds with the E-TEAM investigators in the field as they piece together the actual events that take place in various troubled spots around the globe. Together they smuggle across the border into Syria to conduct undercover investigations as the civil war rages; amidst bullets and bombs we watch as Fred and Peter work to halt human rights abuses in the aftermath of the Gaddafi regime. We also spend time with each E-Team member at home -- from a quiet farm outside of Geneva to bustling urban lives in Berlin and Paris – as they balance the intricacies of family and personal relationships within the challenges of their exceptional work life.
Though they are different personalities, they share a fearless spirit and a deep commitment to exposing and halting human rights abuses all over the world.
