10 December: part 2 (1-2pm)

We have decided this session will focus on work we have examined in the Guilt Group concerning the Rwandan genocide, and specifically the quest of some to bring the perpetrators to justice. We have engaged particularly with the work of the filmmaker Antonio Rui Ribeiro. A film he made for Al Jazeera’s witness series called Justice Seekers, and a longer film using some of the same footage called The Arrows of TruthJustice Seekers is available online. If you register to attend this online seminar, it would be useful to please have a look at Justice Seekers beforehand. (around three-quarters of an hour long), available here: https://www.aljazeera.com/program/witness/2014/4/13/justice-seekers
