A two-hour documentary examining the international ramifications of genocide in Rwanda
In collaboration with the BBC and Silverbridge Productions, Frontline dissected the international humanitarian and political crisis that developed during the 1994 Rwandan genocide. The program builds on groundbreaking, first-hand accounts from those who lived through it and from others who represented the political powers involved: the U.N. peacekeepers, the U.S. and European leaders. The strength of this program rests on context, the detailed examination of the many players who failed to intervene in time to prevent the murder of 800,000 Rwandans. The program takes the under-reported story of Rwanda to a higher level as every top official breaks down in the face of immoral actions.
