Description

This is the world premiere of the first film ever made by a survivor of the genocide against the Tutsis in Rwanda in 1994. In a scene only five feet from the perpetrators, Ndahayo asks, “My father was among the people you killed. Now, tell me how you killed him. Did you choke him? Did you poison him? Did you burn him in the same way you burnt my mother, my younger sister and those 153 other people?

The film screening was followed by a discussion.

Theme of the day: Channeling the Voices of the Lost: the Case of Africa

Whoever now dies somewhere in the world, dies without reason in the world, looks at me.
