In the Shadow of the Machete 51:00, 1998 (Ref: AF98160)


A powerful & moving documentary. Filmed 4-years after the genocide, Rwanda is still at war with itself. It’s a broken world, torn by loss and guilt and by tribal suspicion, where more than a hundred thousand killers languish in prison and where the innocent and the guilty are searching for the road to reconciliation. People were driven to butcher friends, relatives, even members of their own families. Only now are the victims beginning to come forward to tell their stories and speak of their fears of another genocide. In this film, the killers and the survivors tell their stories.
