Abstract:

Fifty years after the Holocaust, the world allowed another genocide to take place, this time in Rwanda. In April 1994, the international community watched as 800,000 Tutsi men, women and children were massacred under the eyes of UN peacekeepers. Shot over three years, the film follows several Rwandans before, during, and after the genocide. The first part explores two key regions: Kibuye and the Bugesera. The second part focuses on the largest massacre in Kigali and features unique footage shot by a UN peacekeeper. UN soldiers pulled out and victims were left behind. In part 3, the Hutu majority was subjected to crimes perpetrated by the new Rwandan government, led by Tutsi extremists.
