Release Date: February 01, 2006
Ten years ago, Lesley Bilinda wrote the acclaimed book The Colour of Darkness, a personal account of the horrors of the Rwandan genocide, in which she lost her husband Charles. For a decade, she has lived with no knowledge of how Charles died, or the identity of his killers. She returned to Rwanda with a documentary film crew to uncover the truth, but instead discovered that Charles had been having an affair before and during their marriage. This moving story charts Lesley's physical and emotional journey through a post-genocide Rwanda still shrouded in deceit and confusion. Despite the painful revelations, she gained a new sense of freedom from knowing the truth, and a fresh belief in herself and in God.
