Shooting Dogs World Premiere

Last night the World Premiere of Shooting Dogs took place in a stadium in Kigali to 1,500 guests.

In attendance was the Culture Minister Habineza Joseph and many families who survived the genocide.

"The film-making was a most rewarding experience for the thousands of Rwandans who participated," said Mr Habineza.

"The story that is told in the film is an important contribution to this country's recent history and I believe can help in the process of reconciliation that we have been building in Rwanda for more than a decade," he added.

The UK Premiere will take place on Thursday night and the film opens nationwide on Friday.

Yesterday's streaming of The Roadblock Scene has proved very popular so we've decided to keep the link up until tomorrow.

It must have been VERY moving, would have been quite the sight to see I imagine. Your blog is awesome and the clip is terrific, I've watched it a couple times and it just makes me anxious to see the full thing. Hope to see some Kigali premiere pictures as well.

As of yet, we still don't have a distributor in the U.S.

However, all the supportive comments and enquiries we have had from you have been passed on to the producers so… fingers crossed.

i saw the movie yesterday (UK), and the road block scene was very moving. in fact, the whole film was very well made, with the documentary feel making everything seem more real and close. i myself was left thinking if i would have stayed behind, or left save my own life. an amazing achievement, and utterly shocking.
