a short film from Belgium, and Burundi

1994 or thereabouts. There is a civil war on in Burundi. A genocidal conflict opposing Hutus and Tutsis... We are witnesses to one of those sadly frequent episodes : the attack by the rebels of a minibus transporting ordinary passengers. A Kalashnikov bursts out. The bus stops, the passengers get off. There follows a selection separating Hutus and Tutsis. But who is a Hutu, who is a Tutsi? Na Wewe means You Too in Kirundi.

a movie from Switzerland

In a very lonely and peaceful countryside, a Highway that was started but never completed remains unused. Right next to this abandonned highway there is an inhabited house. The constuction work is about to resume and its opening has already been forecasted.

RSVP is required via the High Museum.
