Umudugudu: Rwanda 20 Years On [DOC]

Dir. Giordano Cossu,

France. 2014. 36min. Colour. Kinyarwanda, English with English subtitles.

Former genocide killers and survivors live together once again in umudugudus (villages). How is life together, when your neighbour is the one who killed your family? Released from prison in 2012, Osée massacred over 100 people in 1994 and has now returned to his home village. He lives next to Esperance, who miraculously survived Osée’s machete and still bares its scars on her head and back. A series of stories like this one provide a thought-provoking reflection on rebuilding life and society in the hills of Rwanda.
