A documentary film directed by Andre Vltchek
Rwandan Gambit is a ground-breaking feature-length documentary film, written and directed by Andre Vltchek. Rwandan Gambit challenges the official Western narrative on Rwanda and the genocide that occurred there. Is Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame really a savior of the nation, or one of the perpetrators, who was at least partially responsible for the 1994 bloodbath?
Kagame’s armed forces – RPF – were, before 1994, supported by the United States and by its close ally – Uganda. Was RPF responsible for the 1994 downing of the plane carrying the Presidents of Rwanda and Burundi? All the passengers on-board died; the event that triggered the genocide. Why did the international community derail the investigation? What came after the genocide? Rwanda and Uganda invaded DR Congo, overthrew governments and engaged in the plundering of natural resources, on behalf of Western companies and governments.
The plunder still carries on, as well as mass slaughter that could be easily defined as the worst genocide since WWII. Between 6 and 10 million Congolese people have died in the past two decades.
was filmed over more than three years, in the territories of Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, DR Congo, Kenya, South Africa, as well as the United States, Europe and Japan. It contains exclusive footage and dozens of key interviews with the victims and perpetrators, as well as members of international tribunals, diplomats, UN employees, Kagame’s close circle of friends, investigative journalists and other key figures in this complex and ongoing tragedy.
