Shooting Dogs (July 31)

According to their website, Shooting Dogs is scheduled to be released on DVD on July 31. The film is based on the true story of a priest and teacher who find themselves in the middle of the Rwandan genocide.


Captured mainly from the viewpoints of two British settlers — an idealistic young teacher and a world-weary priest — the film’s central tension is not borne from how, but rather how long, the main characters will stand by as thousands of Rwandans take refuge in their secondary school amid the maelstrom of civil war.

As an aside, the logline is excellent — 1994, 800,000 killed in 100 days. Would you risk your life to make a difference?
