Unforgivable – Justice Film Festival presents Summer Films

Available until September 8, 2020

Unforgivable, directed by Giosue Petrone

What happens when the person who nearly destroyed your life confronts you and asks for forgiveness? Imperdonabile (Unforgivable) explores the relationship between Alice, a Tutsi woman who lost her child and her hand in the genocide of the Hutu against the Tutsi in 1994, and Emmanuel, the Hutu man who attacked her and her family. After serving his prison term, Emmanuel seeks out Alice and confesses to being the one who cut off her hand.

Alice extends forgiveness to him and together they run the Uruki Kuganze Association, providing housing and counseling for genocide survivors and facilitating reconciliation between survivors and their former attackers.
