Statement from Kate Allen, UK Director of Amnesty International + Fantastic photos from the event.

“Shooting Dogs is a hugely powerful and truly moving depiction of one of the most shocking events of the twentieth century...Michael Caton-Jones’ film magnificently brings one of recent history’s darkest
chapters to life and it does so with great humanity and insight...While never flinching from the true horror of the genocide, Shooting Dogs nevertheless succeeds in creating a brilliantly compelling drama...The Rwandan genocide shocked the world in 1994 but is now in danger of being forgotten by the international community...This important film helps to ensure that we do not forget.”
Kate Allen, UK Director of Amnesty International

Hello from Dublin , Ireland !

Thought you might like to know : 'Shooting Dogs' got a great write-up , over two full pages , in the latest edition of 'Village' magazine (dated 16-22 March). And our blog (with over 70,000 hits!) has been linking to the films blog for a number of weeks now . Good luck with the project!

I saw the film.
I want to tell people to go see it.
Unfortunately, there are no dates or locations here or anywhere that i can find easily.
So how do i tell people to see it if i cant tell them where or when?
Please put this information at the top of your blog.
Then i will send people this link.
All the best.

I saw the trailer and I must say it reminded me of Hotel Rwanda. Though it seems very similar, I believe that the more it is said and shown the least people will forget...hopefully. Julie, UK

I must tell you that I am so tired of films and books with three dimensional white men surrounded by black savages. I'm hoping this film will be different but I have been disappointed before. On the other hand I think Michael Caton Jones is a fantastic director and John Hurt is never less than sensational so I will give them both the benefit of the doubt.

Have just seen 'Shooting Dogs' and thought it was a powerful and honest portrayal of humanities best and worst aspect. We must never forget the victims of this and all genocides. Patrick, Surrey UK.
