It was ten years in the making, and rightfully so. The end result is a film that brilliantly captures the unthinkable and shows the Gacaca, the Rwandan system of community justice where perpetrators of the genocide meet in public with their victims to address the past and find a way to move forward. The film documents the anger, the accusations, the denials, the sadness, and the unfathomable horror, but also demonstrates that post-conflict reconciliation is not impossible.
Iyi filime yatwaye imyaka icumi. Ni igihe cyari gikenewe ngo maze Gacaca yerekane ko n’ibyo umuntu adatekereza bishoboka. Gacaca nk’uburyo gakondo bwo gukemura imanza, yatumye abacikacumu n’ababiciye bisobanura mu ruhame, mbere yo kongera kubana. Anne Agion arerekana uburakare, ibirego, guhakana, umubabaro, n’ibindi n’ibindi, yewe no kongera kubana kwa bose.
