7 Days in Kigali

RWANDA - 1994: An inter-ethnic genocide erupts on an industrial scale. What happened in Rwanda was not simply spontaneous; it was a planned genocide. Lists were made. Weapons were collected. The radio station, RTLM (Radio Television Libre des Mille Collines), spent months conditioning their audiences to believe that one sector of their population -- the Tutsi -- represented a threat. This highly-intricate film follows several characters from different parts of the city, hour by hour, through that first crucial week when the devastating massacre could have been averted.
