This film chronicles and revisits the harrowing story of the Rwandan Genocide of 1994, one of the worst human atrocities of the 20th century.
This 10th anniversary, American-made documentary (and accompanying website) includes interviews with several key figures, including government officials, diplomats, and eyewitnesses accounts.
Warning: This documentary contains disturbing emotional and graphic content. For example, you will see dead bodies in various states of mutilation and decomposition, although it is probably the interviews and human stories that are the most emotionally disturbing.
Connections between the Rwandan Genocide and Social Psychology
Some students observations and comments which connect aspects of GOR with principles, theories, and research in social psychology are listed here (feel free to edit/add, etc.):
SteveHenry observed that the interviewed farmer who had been involved in killing explained by this as the "devil" overtaking him (perhaps because "religion" provided a salient schema). Also note the self-serving attribution bias to explain one's "undesired" behaviours externally.
