The Film: Hotel Rwanda
Directed by Terry George, 'Hotel Rwanda' stars Don Cheadle as a hotel manager who finds he has to act way beyond the call of duty when he tries to protect his family and his neighbours from his other neighbours - armed with machetes and with genocide on their minds. It's a true story, which takes us back to Rwanda just 10 years ago - and a period where 1m people were murdered in three months. George Seremba, Peter Sheridan and Anne Enright discuss 'Hotel Rwanda'
