Small Country: An African Childhood

Petit pays (N/C 12+)

Dir Éric Barbie

Gabriel, aged 10, lives in a comfortable expatriate neighbourhood in Burundi (his Small Country) with his French entrepreneur father and Rwandan mother. Gabriel is a normal child, happy, carefree and running around having adventures with his friends and little sister. Until in 1993 tensions in neighbouring Rwanda spill over, threatening his family and his innocence.
