Summary
Focusing on the 1994 Rwandan genocide, this film examines the international justice system and studies the activities of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR), which is prosecuting those responsible for the tragedy as well as those of the gacaca courts, or grass courts - the people's tribunals - who are working toward justice through reconciliation. By juxtaposing archival footage of an international court enacting justice behind closed doors with images and testimony gathered in the field, the film presents conflicting points of view and invites the Rwandan people to reappropriate their own history. Director Christophe Gargot has his roots in the rich documentary tradition of filmmakers who are interested in focusing on the rituals of large institutions. This film examines the issue of universal moral values in action while at the same time questioning our relationship with the images we take in and our responsibilities as world citizens
