In April 1994, after the airplane of the Hutu President of Rwanda is shot down, the Hutu militias slaughter the Tutsi population. In the Ecole Technique Officielle, the Catholic priest Christopher and the idealistic English teacher Joe Connor lodge two thousand and five hundred Rwandans refugees, under the protection of the Belgian UN force and under siege by Hutu militia. When the Tutsi refugees are abandoned by the UN, they are murdered by the extremist militia. —IMDb

This little known excellent film was originally released in 2005 with the title Shooting Dogs but is also known as Behind the Gates. It fits right in there with Hotel Rwanda and Sometimes in April, each telling of the same horrors from a different angle. Along with the PBS documentary Frontline: Ghosts of Rwanda, these films should be mandatory viewing for anyone seeking to understand the events of the genocide.
