"In Rwanda we say….the family that does not speak dies"

Africa Program
In a profound testament to the liberating power of speech, award-winning filmmaker Anne Aghion's "In Rwanda we say…The family that does not speak dies" ventures to a rural Rwandan village, just as the government is releasing close to 16,000 Hutu prisoners accused of horrific genocidal crimes. Now, in a place where daily existence depends on cooperation, survivors of the 1994 attempt to eradicate the Tutsi minority must live side-by-side with their assailants. Fear and violence lurk just beneath the surface, but, as the camera rolls, the people of this tiny hamlet begin a remarkable dialogue, a possible first step toward reconciliation. This film screening will be held at Visions Theatre.
