Ghosts of Rwanda documents the genocide that brought about the slaughter of nearly one million citizens in that country. The film interviews many of the military and political leaders who played a part in the horrific events including such international figures as Madeleine Albright and Kofi Annan. The film concludes with a study of how these events both changed and have not changed the international community's response to similar situations.
