Included in this unit are the following:
➢ Links to various articles
➢ A multiple choice quiz with seven questions and answers
➢ Six discussion questions (Two of these questions use quotations from the film and these two questions have two follow up questions – so there are really eight questions.)
➢ Article from the United Human Rights Council on the Genocide in Rwanda
➢ Seven questions and answers to the United Human Rights Council’s article
➢ Two Time magazine covers
➢ Brief except from Time magazine article with a link for further reading
➢ Summary from IMDBPro
➢ Images from the film
➢ An interview (in PDF format): “The real-life story behind 'Hotel Rwanda'” with Katie Couric, Don Cheadle, Paul Rusesabagina, and the director of the film Terry George
➢ PDF versions of this file: one with and one without the background image
I teach HOTEL RWANDA as a TEXTURE TEXT or a CONTEXT TEXT usually alongside THE REPUBLIC. It is an excellent film to use when studying philosophical concepts including, but not limited to, the following: morality, ethics, sacrifice, duty, and freedom.
