This fascinating look at the Gacaca--Rwanda's equivalent of South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation committees--is unable to provide closure for viewers, and that's probably the way it should be. That said, the film ends somewhat abruptly and could have comfortably been extended another 15 minutes or so. Footage of the Gacaca, bolstered by interviews with those who survived the Rwandan genocide of 1994 as well as those who participated in it, make this a valuable document of a terrible event all but overlooked by mainstream American media. It'll be fascinating, and incredibly instructive, to see if a peaceful future awaits Rwanda, and if the process of Gacaca can teach the rest of us any lessons.
