Storyline

RWANDA & JULIET is a feature-length documentary that follows ivy league professor emeritus Andrew Garrod to Kigali, Rwanda, where he mounts Shakespeares Romeo and Juliet with Rwandan college students from both Hutu and Tutsi backgrounds. Twenty years have passed since the 1994 Genocide that left 1,000,000 Tutsis dead. Predominantly orphans, the cast of young Rwandans, led by a stunning, strong headed Juliet, tackle their country's past and their own future as hopes, expectations, pasts, personalities and cultures collide as opening night approaches.

it takes you through the sequence of amateur actors of originally competing ethnic groups putting on a western play that in part exposes old wounds and creates negative reactions at the last minute then succeeds wildly.

It also makes you appreciate just how severe was the genocide there in Rwanda and how the west stood by and watched. The personal stories of some of the actors is explored. For example three brothers live in the same house together as teenagers,there is no-one else left in the family. It was quite moving and never contrived. The filming is well done editing is concise and the realities of the project never overlooked.
