MY NEIGHBOUR, MY KILLER

Dir: Anne Aghion
United States / 2009 / 80mins

One of the rare documentary films to be accepted as an Official Selection at Cannes, this in-depth study explores the Gacaca Tribunals in Rwanda, open-air hearings in which Rwandan Hutus charged with the 1994 genocide and having been released from prison, are judged by Tutsi survivors and citizen-judges. Aghion charts the complicated emotional impacts as well as the practical consequences of this groundbreaking legal experiment in reconciliation and justice. The LA Times calls it 'quietly devestating' and Newsweeks writes it's 'a much-needed examination of the challenging yet necessary process of justice and reconciliation in the aftermath of genocide'.

We hosted the screening of My Neighbour, My Killer for the Bird's Eye View Film Festival.
