The Armenian Genocide is the complete story of over one million Armenians who died at the hands of the Ottoman Turks during WWI. This film features interviews with leading experts in the field. It includes historical footage and key players including Rafael Lemkin relating of how he invented the word genocide in the 1940s.

Un an après la fin du régime Khmer rouge, Jean Ellul se rend au Cambodge qu'il avait quitté précipitamment. Il emporte avec lui une caméra 8 mm. Vingt-huit ans après, Jean Ellul et sa femme redécouvrent ces images. Cambodge 80 Projection donne à écouter la parole d'un homme discret qui a filmé spontanément ce qu'il a vu, comme il l'a vu.

Suivi d'une discussion avec le public et Geneviève Channarét Srey, survivante du génocide cambodgien. Modération par Sabrina Moisan, Centre commémoratif de l'Holocauste à Montréal.

Wednessday, March 23rd at 6:30pm
United States / 2009 / 80 min. / English Version / Directed by Anne Aghion / Produced by Gacaca Productions

In 1994, hundreds of thousands of Rwandan Tutsis were massacred by Hutus. In 2001, the government put in place the Gacaca Tribunals-open-air hearings with citizen-judges meant to try their neighbours and rebuild the nation. Confessed killers are sent home from prison, while survivors are asked to forgive them. Filming for almost a decade in a tiny hamlet, Anne Aghion has charted the impact of the Gacaca on the population.

Followed by a discussion with Monique Mukabalisa, Page Rwanda, and moderated by Julie Shugarman, Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre.
