Next up on hosts Karen Gleeson and Paul Sheridan’s list is, Oct. 13, “Storm” (2009, Germany/Denmark/Netherlands/Sweden/Bosnia and Herzegovina). “Storm” highlights the day-to-day work of the UN's justice staff. New Zealander Kerry Fox portrays Hannah Maynard, a prosecutor for the Hague Tribunal, who tries untangle the war crimes of a former Serbian commander.
