Beyond the Gates DVD
Enthusiastically lauded by critics and audiences alike, Beyond the Gates is a powerful re-telling of the actual events of Rwanda's 1994 genocide.
At first, life is relatively calm at Rwanda's Ecole Technique Officielle, a European-run secondary school where UN peacekeepers provide protection for students and refugees alike, in a country scarred by historically warring factions. And a wise if world-weary Catholic priest (John Hurt) is an apt spiritual guide for an idealistic young teacher (Hugh Dancy). But when Hutu militia launch a bloody attack on the school, the two men must search their faith and decide whether to face death amongst the refugees or flee for safety.
"Beyond the Gates is a profoundly touching human drama that's definitely worth seeing."̴? Seattle Post Intelligencer
