Sometimes in April
Unlike Hotel Rwanda, it doesn't tell just one person's story. It revolves around a few - Augustin, a moderate Hutu military officer, married to a Tutsis who takes refuge in the Kigali Hotel; his brother, Honore, a radical radio personality who broadcasts against Tutsis and is put on trial; and Martine, a survivor who later becomes Augustin's partner. It passes back and forth from the beginning of the genocide to the 2004 trials.
This is a movie that must be seen....if not to see what happened, then to find out how the world's most powerful nations disgraced themselves by doing nothing while 800,000 innocent men, women and children were brutally slaughtered in a mere 100 days.
When the movie was over, I felt ashamed and sad. Americans were more consumed, during the genocide, by the suicide of Kurt Cobain than by the slaughter of tens of thousands of Africans.
Even today, we seem to care more about Brangelina and what an asshole Tom Cruise is, than the ongoing genocide in Sudan.
