Another part of Ms. Aghion's important overview of post-genocide Rwanda
22 May 2010 | by See all my reviews

Revisiting the Rwandan genocide trials, which applied the remarkable Rwandan traditional ideals of confrontation and then forgiveness to horrendous acts of violence, this film goes a step deeper, and is more emotional than Ms. Agion's laudable 'In Rwanda We Say…'. (I have yet to see the other two parts of her examination of this issue; 'Gacaca' and 'Notebooks of Memory' - but I hope to have the opportunity)

The film spends much of it's time examining how nearly impossible a task forgiveness was for the victims who saw their families slaughtered. As with 'In Rwanda We Say...' I found myself wishing for an even longer running time, so the film could have gone even further into the hearts and minds of those involved. But that minor quibble aside, there's no denying the power and complexity it does show.

Sadly, the films are not currently available for rental or sale, except at very high 'institutional and public screening' rates. That's a shame, since these are films that could touch many more people given the opportunity. Still, they have played on the Sundance Channel, and there seem to be occasional festival and educational screenings, so keep your eyes open for them.
