Very much looking forward to seeing this's so important to remember that we have a collective responsibility to ensure that atrocities such as these NEVER happen again. It is our responsibility to stand up and resolve to act in the future

What monumental hypocrisy for John Hurt to barely stop his tirade, inter alia, against 'the Bush Administration' as reported, and simply cover up the criminal negligence and fraud of the Clinton Administration's closed eyes policy to the atricities as simply those of the 'the West'.

I have just seen a feature on BBC news about this film. It is important that such events are remembered - how much of the proceeds that the film makes will go towards helping the survivors?

I was at the event last night and it was fantastic. Beatha, a genocide survivor spoke very movingly before the film. The film itself was unbelievable and it is certainly hugely important for people to see it.

As for the survivors, I know that during the filming,a lot of money was put into the local communities and that the school in which the film was shot was given a large sum of money. A charity was also set up for locals to make their own films.

From the event last night, money made from the ticket sales went to the 4 charities involved. All charity members and survivors I spoke to last night were hugely appreciative of what the film was providing for the people of Rwanda, not simply on a financial basis, but more for the reason that their story is being told internationally...finally.

How cynical...people said after WW2, never again, then after the Rwandese genocide - where once again - the Western world stood by and watched - the same words were uttered again...and as we speak another genocide is taking place in Darfur IN FULL VIEW OF THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY!!!!!!!!
when hundred of thousands more will have died there, i bet the media and the politicians will say it once again...until next time, in DRC Congo or Burundi maybe??????
