"Exactly seventeen years have now passed since the 1994 Rwandan genocide, and the small, landlocked nation has managed to maintain a semblance of stability, avoiding the crises that its neighbors have endured. What is the reason for this? How has this country reconciled its past, and how do victims and perpetrators alike live together in the present?
Charles Annenberg Weingarten and the explore.org Team traveled to Rwanda to answer that very question. The film that resulted from the trip, Raindrops Over Rwanda, focuses on the Kigali Memorial Centre and a young man who survived the genocide and now serves as the Centre's head guide. Raindrops Over Rwanda is now available on PEGMedia for free download.
After explore.org's trip to Rwanda, Honoré Gatera, the main subject of the film, came to the United States for the very first time and sat down with Charlie at Link TV headquarters for a memorable interview. This interview is available as well, and is an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at how the movie was made, as well as Honoré's experiences and unique worldview. This amazing film and accompanying interview illuminate how Rwandans can teach the world not only about how to avoid genocide, but also how to heal and forgive in order to live together in the future.
