After the holocaust the world said, "never again," yet genocide is happening in the world right now. The stories we forget to tell, of the survivors we never knew, will haunt us until we listen and act.
Narratives of Modern Genocide challenges the audience to experience first-person accounts of survivors of genocide. Sichan Siv and Gilbert Tuhabonye share how they escaped the killing fields of Cambodia, and the massacre of school children in Burundi. Mixing haunting animation, and expert context the film confronts our notion that the holocaust was the last genocide.
“While this may seem like the story of two men, it is the history of too many. Combined with beautifully drawn animation and starkly contrasted news clips, this doc strikes a cord. It’s important. It must be shown to as wide an audience as possible. It must serve as a warning to future generations." - Liz Whittemore, Reel Daily News
"The significance of the documentary is triple E: Education, Eradication, Emancipation” - - Sichan Siv, former U.S. Ambassador to Cambodia and survivor of Pol Pot's Killing Fields in Cambodia.
“This project shares with our children what has happened and is happening…educates the new generation, ideally, it really helps to ensure these genocides don't happen again. I hope many people will be able to learn about what happened in Burundi and across the globe." - - Gilbert Tuhabonye, survivor of the 1993 genocide of Burundi and Commissioner of Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission (THGC)
