A reconstruction of the King of Rwanda 's palace at Nyanza The earliest inhabitants of what is now Rwanda were the Twaa group of aboriginal pygmy hunter-gatherers who settled in the area between BC and BC and remain in Rwanda today. Rwabugiri expanded the kingdom west and north,   and initiated administrative reforms which caused a rift to grow between the Hutu and Tutsi populations.
The place is Kibuye, a village where the Hutu and the financially better-off Tutsi people live together in an environment simmering with tribal tensions. It is in this uneasy world where the young and beautiful Josette and her lover Baptiste -- both Tutsis -- plan to marry.
The attack of the Hutus erupts one night separating the two -- Baptiste flees into the jungle and eventually becomes a guerrilla fighter, while Josette and her family head to the local Catholic Church for protection. The local priest has his lascivious eyes on Josette, who is!
A harrowing story of a human tragedy told with assured, unflinching direction and tenderly realistic acting; many of the cast actually survived the massacre.
As the world turned its head, the U. Nick Hughes, an ex-BBC reporter now based in Kenya, has succeeded in giving a face and tremendous emotions to an unforgettable tale of survival, love and retribution.
Hiding From Death "The genocide in Rwanda in killedpeople, almost wiping out the Tutsi minority tribe. Among the survivors is Immaculee Ilibagiza, an inspiring Tutsi woman who hid from Hutu attackers. Along with six other women, Ilibagiza was crammed into a tiny bathroom for three months, often within earshot of the killers.
Ilibagize returns to Rwanda with correspondent Bob Simon, shows him her hiding place, and recalls this time of terror.
Based on a story co-written by BBC journalist David Belton -- who was working in the country at the time of the genocide -- Shooting Dogs is an intense and powerful fictionalised account of events that took place at the Ecole Technique Officielle school in Kigali between April 6th and April 11th in The film shows the experiences of the world-weary school headmaster Father Christopher John Hurt and Joe Connor Hugh Dancya charismatic and idealistic young man taking a year out teaching in Africa.
When the genocide begins to erupt, the school becomes a refuge for Europeans and Tutsis.
A contingent of Belgian UN soldiers is stationed at the school but as the Hutu government vows to eliminate all Tutsis, the refugees wonder if the UN will protect them from the machete-wielding Hutu militias who start to surround the school. In order to give the film a realistic look, director Michael Canton-Jones elicits naturalistic performances from the actors, some of whom are survivors of the genocide.
The film was shot largely with handheld cameras in order to give a documentary feel to the story and Shooting Dogs was filmed at the school caught up in the genocide.
John Hurt and Hugh Dancy give strong, emotional performances as characters caught up in a series of moral dilemmas as to how they can help the Tutsis. By focusing on the fate of one school, this accomplished film succeeds in giving an overview of the Rwandan conflict and the inertia of various governments and organisations in dealing with the violence.
