Ghosts of Rwanda is a highly acclaimed two-hour documentary on the social, political and diplomatic failures that converged to enable the 1994 genocide in Rwanda to occur.
Through interviews with key government officials, diplomats, soldiers and survivors of the slaughter, Ghosts of Rwanda presents groundbreaking, first-hand accounts of the genocide from those who lived it, including Carl Wilkens, the only American to remain in Rwanda during the entire genocide. Wilkens' choice to stay and try to help resulted in saving the lives of several adults and preventing the massacre of hundreds of children.
