This weekend, next to the Sask Fashion Week tent is the Regina Public Library. A completely different sort of cultural experience awaits this weekend in the Library basement, where the film theatre is.
One Canadian film premieres in Regina this weekend, at the Public Library Theatre, the powerful documentary Fight Like Soldiers, Die Like Children, which follows former Romeo Dallaire (who had been UN Force Commander during the Rwanda genocide in the mid 90s) on his current global mission to end the use of child soldiers.
At the Regina Public Library Film Theatre (2311 – 12th Avenue, Lower Level)
Fight Like Soldiers, Die Like Children
Thursday, May 9 – 7:00 pm
Friday, May 10 – 9:00 pm
Saturday, May 11 – 7:00 pm
Sunday, May 12 – 9:00 pm
Fight Like Soldiers, Die Like Children: the filmmakers of Shake Hands with the Devil again join Romeo Dallaire, who continues to be haunted by the Rwandan genocide. Now Dallaire returns to the conflict front lines of Africa to meet recently demobilized child soldiers, and to confront their commanders.

I watched Shake Hands With the Devil on plane flight once. There are not many other movies that can make you proud to be Canadian, and ashamed to be human, at the same time. I have a high level of respect for Romeo Dallaire.
