A Film by Marie-France Collard

- Producer -

In 2009 the Brussels Assizes Court tried in absentia Ephrem Nkezabera, leader of the extremist Hutu Interahamwe militias, spearhead of the genocide of the Tutsis as well as the massacre of moderate Hutus in Rwanda in 1994. We were able to exceptionally film the debates. At the same time, survivors and relatives of the victims express themselves regarding these questions: aside from the suffering which will never cease, is a mourning process possible? What is the state of reparation and justice now that the work of the ICTR (International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda) is coming to an end, while the victims' and persecutors' paths continuously keep crossing, in Belgium as well as in other European countries?
