How can a country of 10 million bring to trial approximately 130,000 people accused of murdering 800,000 neighbors in one of the worst genocides of the 20th century? Anne Aghion’s documentary is the culmination of 10 years of filming the implementation of the traditional Gacaca courts as a form of restorative justice. This quiet, slow-breathing movie focuses its lens on one community as it prepares for and carries out a hearing “on the grass.” In English and Kinyarwanda with English subtitles.
