REVIEW OF RWANDA: BEYOND THE DEADLY PIT

In IN THE NEWS on February 9, 2012 at 11:04 am

Gilbert Ndahayo’s documentary film, Rwanda: Beyond the Deadly Pit is an explosive work on what happened in Rwanda. It clearly makes every other film, based on the genocide that happened in Rwanda look like a caricature of some sort, whether fictitious or documentary.
African Oscars, 2012

The film itself looked at the “greatest personal failures” of former President Bill Clinton as it followed Gilbert Ndahayo, a survivor of the genocide on a journey back to Rwanda to attempt to rebury all 52 of his immediate family who were murdered before confronting and giving forgiveness to the murderer of his father.
Third International Genocide Conference, Sacramento State University, 2011

Rwanda: Beyond The Deadly Pit has been nominated for 2012 AMAA for Best Documentary. AMAA is The Africa Movie Academy Awards – the African Oscars – the continent’s most prestigious awards for filmmakers.The nominees were announced in Banjul, the capital of Gambia, at an exclusive ceremony attended by celebrities, top government officials and capitals of industry from Gambia and other African countries.
