Shooting Dogs is a historical drama that was released in 2005. In 1994 the country of Rwanda saw a genocide that would eventually kill eight hundred thousand people inside of a hundred days. During this time, a priest and an English teacher found themselves protecting two and a half thousand ethnic minorities that were sure to be killed. The film follows the pair as they protect them inside of a besieged church, and as they are killed after being abandoned by the UN peace keeping force that was there to protect them. Shooting Dogs was directed by Michael Caton-Jones, and features John Hurt, Hugh Dancy, and Dominique Horwitz.
