    • Let the Devil Sleep: Rwanda 20 Years After Genocide


      from Trocaire Added 7,136 13 0

      Let the Devil Sleep is the story of four individual's unlikely journey of confession, forgiveness and reconciliation in post-genocide Rwanda. The Rwanda genocide of 1994 saw people murdered at a scale and at a speed not seen since World War II. Approximately one million people were killed, primarily from the minority Tutsi ethnic group. The damage inflicted by the genocide went beyond the loss of life. It left the country violently divided and highly traumatised. Towns and villages were split between those who took part in the genocide and those who lost family members. Such was the brutality of those 100 days that long after the killing had ended, the question remained: how could the people of Rwanda ever be reconciled? The film tells the story of how Trócaire's partner the Commission for Justice and Peace helped to bring together perpetrators and survivors of the genocide, building reconciliation between them. Filmed on location in Gikongoro and Kigali, Rwanda, January and February 2014, Let the Devil Sleep is the work of Alan Whelan, Eoghan Rice and Elena Hermosa.

            "the TIME is... NOW" is a film that shows common people trapped in uncommon situations and how they turn out to be survivors instead of becoming victims. These are people from America, Kenya, UK, Israel and Palestine who have survived bombings, torture, close encounters with death and the loss of relatives and friends. These are the people who have survived extreme crises and the only thing they had was their inner power and faith. Did these people know that they had some unique power before they were forced to face those situations? Or was it the human spirit in them that was not beaten? Or was it then, in the most extreme times, when their soul reached out to a higher power? These questions (and others) are addressed with the views of War Psychologists, Spiritual Leaders and Missionaries. So ultimately we appeal to the whole world to make a promise that we will become instrumental in creating peace in the world. This will be our contribution to make our planet a bit better to live in. www.thetimeisnowmovie.com

                  How do we establish ethical leadership in countries where heads of government face allegations of corruption? When does a state’s abuse of power require a military response? And who are our ethical leaders today? In Cape Town on 30 October, The Elders partnered with Al Jazeera’s South2North programme for a debate on ethical leadership, moderated by South African journalist Redi Tlhabi. In part one, Kofi Annan, Gro Harlem Brundtland, Hina Jilani and Desmond Tutu focus on the challenges of peacebuilding, reconciliation and global governance.
