Event Details

In Beasts of Burden, Paul Seawright turns his attention to Rwanda. In the Rwandan genocide of 1994, members of the Hutu ethnic majority murdered an estimated one million people, mostly of the Tutsi minority in just 100 days.

The genocide spread throughout the country as ordinary citizens were incited by local officials and the Hutu Power government to take up arms against their neighbours. 25 years later a distinctive project, Cows for Peace, pairs perpetrators with their victims.

In the project, the groups meet and raise a cow together to reconcile and develop a sustainable future.
