An ethnic conflict in Rwanda and Burundi results in a genocide. But how exactly does the Western viewer perceive the massacres, the instant non-/disinformation, and the involvement of the Western powers? What is the meaning and value of this bloody flow of images? Abandon, pity, humanitarian neo-colonialism, collective guilt, personal responsibilities, crimes and punishments… Is death just another music video? A ‘no end’ story.
