Short Film Profile

Den Sista Hunden I Rwanda

David is like so many 10 year old boys fascinated by war. He builds plastic models of all kinds of military vehicles and plays wargames with his friends. At the age of 24 he establishes himself as a news photographer with the world´s theatres of war as field of occupation. We meet him in Rwanda in May 1994 in the midst of the genocide of Tutsis and moderate Hutus. Together with the thirty year older reporter Mats, he travels through the war-torn country in order to depict the massacres. The Last Dog in Rwanda is a film about the fascination of war and the coupling between the little boy´s exciting wargames and the attractiveness of real wars to the adult.
