World Premiere at TIFF and Canadian Theatrical Release
Director: Michael Caton-Jones
Starring: John Hurt, Hugh Dancy, Claire-Hope Ashitey
Distributor: Equinoxe Films
An emotionally gripping and powerful story from the 1994 Rwandan genocide, based on real events and filmed at the location where the actual events took place, L'École Technique Officielle, in Kigali, where more than 2,000 Tutsi men, women and children sought refuge from the killing frenzy. The film features John Hurt as a priest who finds it difficult to hold fast to his faith when confronted with the region's cycles of violence and Hugh Dancy as a young teacher, both forced to confront the depths of their faith, the limits of their courage and, ultimately, to make a choice: to remain with their people or to run away.
