Summary

  • Rwanda 94. Stage performance commemorating the Rwandan genocide. The Belgian based theatre troupe, Groupov, spent five yars collecting testimonies of survivors, and conducting research in order to find the appropriate forum from which to "speak the unspeakable."
  • Oeuvres en Chantier: Rwanda 94, Groupov 20 ans. Follows the last stages of the development of the play Rwanda 94, whose premiere coincided with the 20th anniversary of the Groupov.
  • Rwanda : a travers nous, l'humanité. Filmed in Rwanda in April 2004, during performances of the show Rwanda 94, in the context of the 10th commemoration of the genocide of the Tutsi and the massacre of Hutu moderates. Through us, humanity... allows the survivors of the genocide to speak out, in their current reality, during this special period of mourning.
  • Bruxelles-Kigali. In 2009 the Brussels Assizes Court tried in absentia Ephrem Nkezabera, leader of the extremist Hutu Interahamwe militias, spearhead of the genocide of the Tutsis as well as the massacre of moderate Hutus in Rwanda in 1994. We were able to exceptionally film the debates. At the same time, survivors and relatives of the victims express themselves regarding these questions: aside from the suffering which will never cease, is a mourning process possible? What is the state of reparation and justice now that the work of the ICTR (International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda) is coming to an end, while the victims' and persecutors' paths continuously keep crossing, in Belgium as well as in other European countries?
