Sometimes in April

Since we have been talking about Rwanda, I thought it would be appropriate to post about the movie “Sometimes in April” that I had to watch for my African Film class.  It is often compared to “Hotel Rwanda” and is based on the genocide.  The movie is about two brothers, one that is on trial for inciting killings through his radio program and another that is a soldier in the Rwandan army and is married to a Tutsi woman.  The movie shows the emotional turns from before, during, and after the genocide.  It is very powerful and does a great job at portraying the different aspects of the genocide and how everyone in Rwanda was affected.  As a warning, it can sometimes be graphic but it is worth watching if anyone is at all interested.
