Chronicle of a Genocide Foretold
- 164 min
Fifty years after the Holocaust, the world allowed another genocide to take place, this time in Rwanda. In April 1994, the international community watched as 800,000 Tutsi men, women and children were massacred, under the eyes of UN peacekeepers. This 164 min. documentary in three parts recounts a horrifying crime that could have been prevented by international law. Shot over three years and based on survivors’ testimonies, Chronicle of a Genocide Foretold follows several Rwandans before, during and after the genocide.
