    NEW YORK, NEW YORK — The E-Team is a documentary film that will follow three Human Rights Watch Emergency Team investigators for over a year as they make their way in and out of some of the most dangerous and volatile regions of the world in order to investigate and shed light on abuses of human rights. Much of the story takes place in Syria and Libya and is, thus, an in-depth look at one of the most important, persistent, present day, international news stories, told through a human rights frame. The E-Team is being produced and directed by Katy Chevigny and Ross Kaufmann for Arts Engine.
