Storyline

A local Hutu official is persuaded to implement the government's policy against the Tutsi: To completely wipe them out. Josette, a beautiful young Tutsi girl struggles to survive the killing by taking refuge in a church, supposedly protected by the UNO forces. Meanwhile, Josette's brother is hunted down and murdered and her boyfriend rescued by the rebels. But the Hutu Catholic priest betrays Josette's family and only agrees to spare her life is to submit to the nightly violations. By the time she is reunited with her boyfriend, neither of them can face the brutal reality of their situation: she is pregnant and bears the priest's child, which she immediately abandons. 100 Days was shot in Kibuye, the beautiful landscape had been the back drop to some of the worst atrocities in 1994. In Kibuye Church, the site of an actual massacre, Rwanda actors played killers and victims that were only too familiar to them. Written by Association Travelling

Great movie,the only one that talks about the Genocide of Rwanda 1994,making its own buzz after the recent feature on BBC World News
30 October 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is the only movie that talks or tells of a story about the Genocide in Rwanda. It is the only one that through beautifull cinematography tries to make sense and not really dehumanize the Rwandan people and this tragedy. I saw this movie back in Montreal at the Film Festivals and I am planning to see it again at the African Diaspora Film Festival in New York, December 2nd. It also just had a good feature on BBCWorldNews and actually, it seems to be making a buzz for itself.

Definetely recomend it for those with a sense of HUMANITY,RESPONSIBILITY and of course GOOD FILMMAKING!
