The cornerstone of The Rwanda Series, this volume in three parts recounts a horrifying crime that could have been prevented by the international community and international law. Shot over three years, Chronicle of a Genocide Foretold follows several Rwandans before, during and after the genocide. Part 1 explores the genesis of the genocide in two key regions of Rwanda, Kibuye and the Bugesera, where "blood was flowing like a river" and "Rwandans will never again be the same."

Details

In April 1994, the international community sat by and watched while a million Tutsi men, women and children were massacred in the central African nation of Rwanda. The Rwanda Series, featuring Hand of God, Hand of the Devil (1996), the three-part Chronicle of a Genocide Foretold (1996) and Sitting on a Volcano (1996), offers a record of a horrifying crime that could have been prevented by the global community and international law. These important films follow several Rwandans before, during and after the genocide.
