“One of those rare things: an adult film in a world of childish portrayals of Africa.”
– Ian Smillie, Ottawa Citizen
“The cause couldn’t be more urgent…
The face of the cause couldn’t be more eloquent.”
– Rick Groen, THE GLOBE AND MAIL
– Andrea Nemetz, THE CHRONICLE HERALD
When you’ve been to hell and back, how do you shake the memories?
This question has haunted General Roméo Dallaire since 1994, when he was UN Force Commander during the Rwandan genocide, explored in our award-winning documentary Shake Hands with the Devil.
Dallaire has now found a reason to live: embarking on a mission to end the use of child soldiers.
Will Dallaire succeed where others have failed? Or will he once again be forced to look on as the world turns away?
Shot in DR Congo, Rwanda, and South Sudan, and across North America, our film will engage youth and adults alike, attracted by Dallaire’s magnetic personality.
