Today is the 20th anniversary of the Rwanda genocide, and in commemoration we're proud to present Anne Aghion's acclaimed My Neighbor, My Killer world wide. Filmed over the course of a decade, the film follows the Gacaca Tribunals—community-run courts where citizens judge their neighbors and perpetrators. The film has screened at numerous festivals such as Cannes, the San Francisco and Vancouver International Film Festivals, and the Human Rights Watch Film Festival, where Aghion won the Néstor Almendros award for courage in filmmaking. My Neighbor, My Killer is a powerful inside look at a people’s attempt to rebuild their nation.
"Anne Aghion asks a lot of tough questions in My Neighbor, My Killer, the fourth and last in her series of films about the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. But the most difficult, posed on the posters for her new film, may be this: after the killing has ceased, and order has been restored, 'How do you make it right again?'" –Larry Rohter, The New York Times
"The most striking thing about the film is the deep wisdom, sad emotional maturity, and even poetry that seems to issue effortlessly from the mouths of the victims." –Peter Brunette, The Hollywood Reporter
"An historic document of incalculable value, but also a superbly shot work of cinema." –Agence French Presse
