Not onscreen, but it happened widely during the genocide and there is a brief scene halfway through the film of women in a sort of cage without any clothes on.

A time stamp would be appreciated, all of the things here are a big issue for me but this one’s probably the worst one and I’d like to know when to look away/plug my ears (I need to watch it for school)

At the end of the film, it’s confirmed that Paul’s wife’s brother and his wife died. They had two children (the children are adopted by paul though).

During the scene after Paul sees something very disturbing, as he is changing in the hotel, he collapses to the ground and starts crying and heavily breathing. It’s evident he was having a panic attack. It is about 15 seconds long and about halfway through the film.

Most of the cast is Black (oppression is based on class and ethnicity)

There is a scene when two characters go to pick up supplies that implies that women are going to be raped (we see them in a cage-like area without any clothes on), but I don’t think we don’t see assault on camera

Ending has hopeful parts but it is still about a tragic attempted ethnic cleansing
