A good movie to start off with before watching Hotel Rwanda. Hotel Rwanda is of a much bigger scale but the impact from Sometimes in April is just as powerful. The name implies the Rwandan Genocide that took place in April 1994, where an estimated 1 million people were killed in 100 days. The movie implores the failure of humanity and the despair of the Tutsis when they were killed in masses by the Hutus. The movie also shows of how the UN reacted to the situation, wherehumanity was put aside merely because Rwanda has no whatsoever political benefits. One cannot help but think what if this happened in Malaysia, what if it happened to the Chinese Malaysian, afterall it's always something trivial that is used as an excuse to trigger something like that. Look at World War 1, that started because of the assassination of the heir to the Austrian throne in Sarajevo.
I must say this movie is not a comfortable watch...but it does makes you stop and ponder...what to do if the same thing happened in Malaysia? Time to start on a contingency plan for no one knows for sure what tomorrow brings.
