  1. The notebooks of memory [videorecording]

    [New York : A. Aghion], c2009.

    The film ventures into the rural heart of the African nation of Rwanda to capture one of the world's boldest experiments in reconciliation, the Gacaca Tribunals. These are a new form of citizen-based justice aimed at unifying this country of 8 million people after the 1994 genocide which claimed over 800,000 lives in 100 days. This film goes directly to the emotional core of the story, talking one-on-one with survivors and accused killers alike. In a powerful, compassionate and insightful film, with almost no narration, and using only original footage, Anne Aghion captures first-hand how ordinary people struggle to find a future after cataclysm.

  2. Gacaca : living together again in Rwanda?

    [United States] : [Name of reproducer not identified], [2015]

    In 1994, decades of politically motivated ethnic scapegoating culminated in a wholesale slaughter of the Rwanda's Tutsi minority, along with many Hutu moderates. Today, Rwanda is rebuilding, but its most difficult task is addressing the emotional trauma and fostering reconciliation between the Hutu and Tutsi. This film follows the first steps in one of the world's boldest experiments in reconciliation: the Gacaca Tribunals. These are a form of citizen-based justice based on ancient traditions of judgement, aimed at unifying this scarred nation.

  3. My neighbor, my killer [videorecording]

    [New York : A. Aghion, c2009]

    A film of the Gacaca Tribunals, open-air hearings with citizen-judges meant to try their neighbors and rebuild the nation. As part of this experiment in reconciliation, confessed genocide killers were sent home from prison, while traumatized survivors were asked to forgive them and resume living side-by-side. Anne Aghion charts the impact of Gacaca on survivors and perpetrators alike. Through their fear and anger, accusations and defenses, blurry truths, inconsolable sadness, and hope for life renewed, she captures the emotional journey to coexistence.
