The genesis of the Rwandan genocide of the 1990s and the ongoing consequences of the massacre are examined in this documentary from filmmaker Deborah Scranton. In 2008, Rwandan president Paul Kagame released the results of an investigation into the causes of the 1994 bloodbath in his nation, as violence broke out in the Eastern Congo along Rwanda's border. In Earth Made Of Glass, Scranton illustrates Kagame's findings and explains the roles French military interference and Belgian occupation played in the Rwandan genocide, aggravating a long-simmering feud between the nation's two primary ethnic groups, Hutus and Tutsis, and adding a political component that escalated the hatred into violence. As Kagame explores the controversial roots of the violence, Jean Pierre Sagahutu tries to come to terms with its aftermath; his family was wiped out in the massacre, and ever since he's been trying to find closure by tracking down the man who murdered his family. In time, Sagahutu succeeds in finding the culprit, but once he does, what is he to do? Earth Made Of Glass was an official selection at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival.
