Kigali, des images contre un massacre

by Jean-Christophe Klotz

2006 Selection


Feature Film

June 1994. Kigali, the capital of Rwanda, is given over to the butchers of the extremist Hutu militia and the Rwandan army. During an attack on a parish in which a hundred refugees have taken shelter, the author, at that time a reporter/cameraman, is shot in the hip. Ten years later, he returns to the scene in search of survivors and his ephemeral 'fellow travelers'. With this journey as its thread, the film is a reflection upon the way such events are handled by the media and politicians.
