The Night of Truth (La Nuit de la vérité)
Cert: 18 Year: 2004 Length: 99 mins Language: Dioula/French
The first Sub-Saharan African film to be directed by a woman this stands with last season's Moolaade as an exploration of modern Africa. In an unnamed African state, a fragile peace is declared between warring tribes. At a feast held in honour of the truce, the undercurrents of years on conflict rage and the words and actions of a few will decide the course of the future for all. Director Nacro said she was going for the universality of a parable, with Shakepearean overtones, and certainly the central character of Colonel Theo bares resemblance to several of the Bard's flawed heroes. But the echoes of Rwanda and other conflicts connect this to recent events still in the mind of Africa and the world.
as powerful as Hotel Rwanda. . .it manages to offer hope without seeming glib or trite
