Re-visiting the Rwandan Genocide

NYAMATA, Rwanda, 29 July 2014 — Some of the 800,000 victims of Rwanda’s 1994 Genocide are buried in a memorial here, in this town about an hour’s drive south of Kigali. I first visited this site in 1996 while on assignment for “ABC’s Nightline With Ted Koppel,” doing a report on Rwandan women who had been raped during the 100-day killing spree that has come to be know as the “Rwandan Genocide.” I’ve returned to visit some of the friends I made during that first trip, about whom I’m making another film.
