In 1994, between April and July, the massacre of Tutsis and moderate Hutus left one million dead. Instigated by Fest'Africa, a dozen African authors met four years after the events as writers in residence at Kigali, to try to break the silence of African intellectuals on this genocide.
In May 2000, on the occasion of the publication of series of works based on this experience, writers and artists from Africa and elsewhere gathered in Rwanda. Facing up to the scars left by the genocide, Samba Felix N'Diaye manages to find just the right sense of distance to film the inexpressible while nevertheless communicating a message of hope.
