Synopsis

The Rwandan genocide of 1994, which saw between half a million and a million ethnic Tutsis killed while the international community sat back, is the subject of this powerful, fact-based drama. After the president’s apparent assassination the Hutu begin slaughtering Tutsis, many of whom flee for sanctuary to a school run by a Catholic priest. It’s also a post for United Nations peacekeepers – but no-one is sure how long the reluctant troops will stick around. Young English teacher Joe is caught up in the bloodshed, and sees his naive idealism harshly challenged. The final credits pay moving tribute to the real-life Rwandan survivors who helped make the film.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
