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.
