Aegis Trust are an NGO working to prevent genocide in the world. Our brief was to give a context for visitors to the Genocide Memorial in Kigali, Rwanda. This film was the introduction to the visit, filmed by the brilliant Jenny Ash.
I recently wrote a blog for Virgin Unite called ‘Forgiveness and peace after genocide’. It was to introduce one of three short films created in memory of those who lost their lives during the genocide in Rwanda. The creation of the films was an incredibly emotional journey for all of us at Sundog Pictures, with Rwandans brave enough to relive their trauma to help share the story.
The Genocide in Rwanda saw more than one million people slaughtered in just 100 days. Devastation and hatred spread across the country, targeting people from the minority Tutsi community and any opponents – regardless of their ethnic origin.
Sundog made a series of films for Aegis Trust and the Kigali Genocide Memorial, working with survivors to tell their story- a inspirational story of forgiveness and peace after genocide.
