When the genocide in Rwanda reached a fever pitch in 1994, the majority of Western forces there hightailed it out, permitting the slaughter of over 800,000 civilians in fewer than 100 days. One of the notable exceptions was Canadian general Romeo Dallaire, the man in charge of the UN's peacekeeping mission in Rwanda, whose repeated calls for immediate intervention on the part of the international community went unheeded. Filmmaker Peter Raymont follows Dallaire as he returns to Rwanda ten years later hoping to put to rest the personal demons he's wrestled with since leaving. This 2004 Canadian feature is a deeply engaging portrait of a remarkable man and a brutally frank indictment of the West's moral cowardice in the face of a tragedy it could have prevented. In English and French with subtitles. 91 min.
