HOTEL RWANDA FILM DIRECTOR SPEAKS OUT : Sort of.

Terry George, Hotel Rwanda film director has broken his silence, but I am not sure what to make of it. In matters like we are dealing with, one cannot sit on the fence, or double talk. Permission denied.

George says that before making the film he grilled Rusesabagina and read all he could about his “experience.” What experience? Get real.

He claims that people who were in the hotel during the material time “tearfully acknowledged Rusesabagina’s role.” The logic escapes me.

George claims that President Kagame told him that the film had done much good around the world in exposing the horrors of the genocide. And this makes Rusesabagina a hero?

Then absurdity sets in : George alleges that “Rwandan authorities fear that Rusesabagina planned to form a political party.”

What catches one’s attention in George’s attempted defense of his flawed “hero” is the passage from “AN ORDINARY MAN”, where Rusesabagina calls Hutus who are engaged in re-building Rwanda “EMPTY SUITS” or “HUTUS FOR HIRE.”

Those are the true colors of this tragic figure that the West has blindly embraced to cover up their shame of being idle spectators of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi.

  1. Shalita you should seek audience with this George and challenge his source of information. Who are these survivors? Can he name but one verifiable?
