Fight Like Soldiers Die Like Children
Fight Like Soldiers Die Like Children
Canadian Premiere at Hot Docs - April 27, 2013

Director: Patrick Reed
Producers: Patrick Reed & Peter Raymont
In 1994, General Roméo Dallaire received orders to stand by as a genocidal civil war
engulfed in Rwanda. 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus were slaughtered in 100 days.
Dallaire returned to Canada a disillusioned and shattered man. Still haunted by these
memories, the celebrated author and humanitarian has embarked on a new mission: to bring
his passion and dedication to ending the recruitment and use of children as soldiers around
the world.

Director Patrick Reed, researcher and producer on Shake Hands With the Devil, White Pine
Picture’s Emmy Award-winning film that chronicled Dallaire’s experience in Rwanda, now
follows Dallaire through the DR Congo, Rwanda, South Sudan and North America as he
meets with child soldiers, self-defense groups, militia leaders and those trying to demobilize
these children.
