Back to Kigali

Director: Jean-Christophe Klotz


At the end of a meticulous and detailed historical investigation, "Return to Kigali" exposes the French responsibilities in the 1994's genocide of the Rwandan Tutsis. The film brings together for the first time most of the key actors of this tragedy which caused more than 800,000 deaths in less than three months. Twenty-five years later, the political and military leaders start talking for the first time.
