Back to Rwanda is a documentary series about the Rwandan Genocide told in 5 personal stories. 25 years ago in this seemingly tropical paradise in 100 days roughly 800.000 Tutsi en moderate Hutu were brutally killed. Each of the episodes tells the story of people sharing the same past, but having experienced it from different point of views. We work towards a meeting or confrontation between those key witnesses. They have influenced each other’s lives – and possibly made a difference between life and death – which meant we couldn’t predict how these meetings would evolve.
