As the country started commemoration of the Genocide against the Tutsi on April 7, a video of a little girl in tattered clothes, sobbing uncontrollably while pointing at the spot where her mother and father were killed, started circulating widely especially on social media. The video perhaps stands out as one of those that bring out the grim reality of the events at the time, where parents were killed before their own children and where children had to find ways of their own survival or risk being killed. This is the story of a young lady, Marianne Mamashenge. She was 5 when she was filmed by a group of foreign journalists in Ntarama, Bugesera district, Eastern Province, as she revisited the place where her parents were killed. It is here that she literally rose from the dead, 26 years ago, having been counted among the dead at Ntarama Roman Catholic Church, a place where the grimmest massacres were recorded in the Genocide against Tutsi.

His upper teeth are nearly gone now; they have been replaced by tiny slivers of off-white that peek through rotten gums. His lower teeth, thin and brown, appear ready to fall out if he so much as coughs too hard. His lips are pale and dry, coated with spit so thick it looks like paste.

I was at a place called the Museum of Image and Sound, lying on my back with seven other people, all of us completely silent in brightly colored hammocks that had been hung around a circular scaffolding. Our feet angled together toward the center of the room and our heads radiated out like lotus petals. We were all staring up at the ceiling, where two video works were being projected, both featuring a pale, red-headed woman who looked like a Nereid sprung to life. In the first video, she navigates her way through a candy-colored world — a birch forest; a long airportlike corridor; a leaf-strewn sidewalk that the camera scuttles along low and fast, as if from the vantage point of a bug. The sequence ends as the woman rises from a body of water with menstrual blood dripping from the crotch of her white underwear, turning the water — and thus the whole screen and the room — a deep crimson.
Somewhere in the North Atlantic, late , a life raft adrift at sea, and in it, the survivors of a torpedoed hospital ship. With no food, water, or shelter, all seems lost until a seemingly abandoned German minesweeper drifts ominously towards them, giving them one last chance at survival—if they can survive the bloodthirsty monsters on board. Seeking support as the guardian of her younger brother, Yoo-mi returns to a small hotel run by a family friend. Starring William Friedkin.
