SAYA ET MIRA
Eleven years after the genocide, the film follows the survivors and torturers before and after the first Gacaca tribunals during which they meet each other face to face. There's Obede, an accused childkiller whose request for pardon is simply a cynical release strategy. There's also Gahutu, who has «no regrets» and facing his judges, he speaks of «snakes» in reference to those being exterminated. And finally, there's François, required to kill his own brother in order to survive and who is now trying to reconcile with his sister-in-law. Through these three stories, the film weaves a portrait of a society at war against the ideology of genocide which remains present.
