The deeply moving true story of a five-star hotel manager who used his wits and words to save more than 1,200 lives during the 1994 Rwandan conflict.
Ten years ago, as his country descended into madness, Paul Rusesabagina (Don Cheadle), a hotel manager in Rwanda, used cunning and courage to save 1,200 people from certain death, while the rest of the world closed its eyes. His real-life story inspired Terry George to make this powerful and dramatic film. Drawn from George's three years of research, this informative volume includes extensive historical background by distinguished experts extracted from books, articles, and interviews as well as the fascinating story of the making of the film, the complete screenplay written by Keir Pearson & Terry George and interviews with producer A. Kitman Ho, Don Cheadle, Paul Rusesabagina and others.
