MILO RAU, COLOGNE + ZURICH + KIGALI
In Rwanda in 1994 during a radio show broadcast by Radio-Télévision Libre des Mille Collines, the groundwork was laid for a savage genocidal scheme. Insidiously and with cynical casualness, slipped in between jokes, riveting sports coverage and a song by Nirvana, the discourse of hate swept over the airways and went viral. In the Rwandan hills the massacre was carried out with machetes, but on the radio shows people were killed with words. In a glass tube that is an exact reproduction of the RTLM studio, the impassioned Swiss director Milo Rau reconstitutes the genesis of hatred. This raw, visceral piece leaves no one unscathed.
