Description:

What would you risk to make a difference?

Based on true events and filmed in Rwanda with genocide survivors as cast and crew, Beyond The Gates tells their shared story of humanity in the most inhumane circumstances.

In April 1994, a secondary school in Kigali, Rwanda called the Ecole Technique Officielle (ETO), being used as a UN army base, became a refugee camp. Belgian UN troops, school children, NGO workers and over 2,500 Tutsi citizens and their sympathizers took refuge against a raging genocide while the Hutu militia, clad with machetes, clamored outside the school gates.

At first, life is relatively calm at the European-run school where UN peacekeepers provide protection for students and refugees alike, in a country scarred by historically warring factions. And a wise if world-weary Catholic priest (John Hurt) is an apt spiritual guide for an idealistic young teacher (Hugh Dancy). But when Hutu militia launch a bloody attack on the school, the two men must search their faith and decide whether to face death amongst the refugees or flee for safety.

Beyond The Gates is about the choices we make when we are free to choose. In the tragic circumstances of the Ecole Technique Officielle, would you have left with the UN troops on the fifth day or would you have stayed?

Directed by Michael Caton-Jones and starring John Hurt, Hugh Dancy and Clare-Hope Ashitey, Beyond The Gates was co-produced by David Belton, Pippa Cross and Jens Meurer. Belton who also co-wrote the original story was a former BBC News night correspondent stationed in Rwanda during the genocide.

Note: This film is unrated. While it has been edited for language, due to strong violence, disturbing images and subject matter it's strongly advised that parents preview before allowing children to watch.

This movie made me cry. I was unaware of what went on in 1994. This movie is very educational and teaches about how naive people can be if you are from a different culture.

Wow what a powerful, touching, emotional movie about the 1994 Rawanda tragedy! We had tears and not much to say afterwards but God Bless all those people that lost their lives and the families! Kinda reminded us of the halocaust. Very well made movie, a must see!
