About this product
- Product InformationJoe Connor (Hugh Dancy) has come to Rwanda to teach because he believes he can make a difference. When the school becomes a haven for thousands of Rwandans fleeing escalating violence, Joe promises his brightest pupil, Marie, that the UN soldiers will protect her from the hordes of extremist militia baying for blood outside the school. But when the UN abandons the refugees, Joe and the school's headmaster, Father Christopher (John Hurt), face an agonising dilemma: should they leave, or should they stand firm with the Rawndans?This deeply-moving and critically-acclaimed film is an emotional retelling of the tragic events that took place at L'cole Technique Officielle during the Rwandan genocide of 1994. Filmed at the actual locations where the events took place, a number of genocide survivors make up the film's cast and crew. This is not just a film about Rwanda. It is a film about humanity, and the questions each of us must confront, wherever in the world we may be, when evil threatens to steal the very basis of this humanity away from us. What would you do?
