Superb account, a must watch.,
This review is from: Shooting Dogs [DVD]  (DVD)
Having spent time out in Rwanda in 2004, the recent films about the genocide (Hotel Rwanda and Shooting Dogs) have been a must watch for me, and they haven't disappointed. Shooting dogs is a graphic and emotional account of the genocide that is made all the more real by being filmed in Rwanda - filmed in actual places some of the atrocities happened. It is just a must watch, and although there have been controversies about the filming of the movie on location in Rwanda (ie Rwandans reliving the horrors of the genocide - hearing gunshots whilst filming, stirring up the divide between Tutsi and Hutu), it adds an extra something that Hotel Rwanda just doesn't have.
This is an excellent film that should be seen by all. We need to learn from our mistakes, and the UN should consider buying a copy of this for all their members!
