As I mentioned in my review earlier this week, Earth Made of Glass, the new documentary by Deborah Scranton, is an extremely important film that people should seek out. It’s about the 1994 Rwandan genocide that resulted in the deaths of over a million Rwandan civilians and does an excellent job of shattering certain misconceptions while bringing new truths to light. The film is a dual narrative and follows both the perspective of a genocide survivor Jean Pierre Sagahutu and his search for his father’s killer and the current president of Rwanda Paul Kagame and his crusade for justice while rebuilding a severely divided country.
I had the privilege and honor of speaking with director Deborah Scranton, producer Reid Carolin and the primary subject of the documentary Jean Pierre Sagahutu at the Tribeca Film Festival.
