This documentary looks at the roots of the conflict in Rwanda that led to the genocide of nearly one million Tutsi people by Hutu military extremists beginning in April of 1994. Forsaken Cries incorporates historical footage from the nation’s colonial period with recent survivor interviews. Among the issues the video explores are international genocide laws, the failure of the international community to intervene in the genocide, the refugee crisis, and the war crimes tribunal.
