Double Bill: Faces of Genocide (2018) + Shooting Dogs (2005)

Thu 12 September @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

- Free

Faces of Genocide: In this award-winning documentary, five survivors of genocide give dignified, powerful accounts of starvation, deprivation, the murder of families, and living in constant fear.

These witnesses and survivors of the slaughter of Yazidis, Armenians, Jews, Cambodians, Bosnians, Rwandans, Darfurians, and Rohingya argue for strong, official international intervention. Followed by a Q&A with producer/co-writer Gayle Donsky.

 

Shooting Dogs (aka Beyond the Gates): Based on real events in the spring of 1994, when Rwandan Hutus slaughtered a million of their Tutsi countrymen, this story tells of 6 days in Kigali’s Ecole Technique Officielle, where the expatriate English priest who runs the school and an idealistic young teacher try to shelter Europeans and Tutsis.

UN troops who should protect the victims are paralysed by institutional failure and indifference. When white Europeans are rescued but not black Rwandans, the ethical horror becomes shamingly clear.

Doors open from 6:00 PM. Refreshments not available to buy during this event, so please feel free to bring your own food & drink.

Directors: Paul Mariano and Kurt Norton (Faces of Genocide) and  Michael Caton-Jones (Shooting Dogs)
