Gacaca: Living Together Again in Rwanda? (2002)

2002. 55 minutes. Rwanda. Producers: Philip Brooks, Laurent Bocahut & Anne Aghion. Documentary

In 1994, decades of politically motivated ethnic scapegoating culminated in a wholesale slaughter of the Rwanda's Tutsi minority, along with many Hutu moderates. Today, Rwanda is rebuilding, but its most difficult task is addressing the emotional trauma and fostering reconciliation between the Hutu and Tutsi. This film follows the first steps in one of the world's boldest experiments in reconciliation: the Gacaca Tribunals. These are a form of citizen-based justice based on ancient traditions of judgment, aimed at unifying this scarred nation.
