Published: 2007-09-18
Fox Home Entertainment is releasing the critically acclaimed film Beyond the Gates starring Academy Award winner John Hurt (The Midnight Express) and Hugh Dancy (Black Hawk Down). The film tracks the tragic events surrounding the 1994 Rwandan genocide as seen by a Catholic priest (Hurt) and young missionary (Dancy) who both take a journey through their faith, their commitment to the people and their very existence and find they are given strength in the midst of the darkness.

The crisis occurs when they are faced with the choice to stay with the thousands of Tutsis seeking refuge in their school, or to flee to safety via the "whites-only" U. N. rescue operation. The film was shot on the same locations where the depicted massacre took place, the producers also included crew who themselves were survivors of the atrocities that took place in Rwanda.

The film releases on DVD today (September 18) and the trailer can be seen here:
