D’Arusha à Arusha / From Arusha to Arusha

D’Arusha à Arusha / From Arusha to Arusha

In Arusha, the capital of Tanzania, before the International War Crimes committee for Rwanda, the trial of the events in Rwanda that led to the genocide of the Tutsis, is ending. Soon his term expires. 15 years were necessary to judge the main protagonists of this drama, providing witness to the antiquated tensions between justice, history, and politics.
It is in this context that Christophe Gargot chose to make a film offering an intense point of view of the particularity of the justice system, questioning its role in reconstruction.
On the occasion of its DVD release, the film is put into perspective with the extremely rich, including two unpublished texts collected in a book to match the DVD. Historian Sylvie Lindeperg led a scholarly reflection on the image and justice. The journalist Thierry Cruvellier offers him a careful analysis of the trial of over 800 pages against Bagosora. It clarifies the situation that judges face a brainless genocide.
