Sometimes in April (2005)

Directed by
Raoul Peck

Over the course of 100 days in 1994, an estimated 800,000 people, the vast majority Tutsis, were brutally murdered in Rwanda during a terrifying purge by their Hutu countrymen. Even for a nation with such a turbulent history as Rwanda, the scale and speed of the slaughter left its people reeling.

Filmed in the locations where the tragedy unfolded just over a decade earlier, Raoul Peck's 2005 film explores Rwanda's mass genocide through the story of two Hutu brothers - one in the military, one a radio personality - whose relationship and private lives were forever changed by the atrocities taking place around them.

Starring Idris Elba (The Wire) and OscarĀ® nominee Debra Winger (In Treatment, An Officer and a Gentleman), Sometimes In April is a powerful and frequently harrowing tale that sheds light on one of history's darkest chapters.
