Kigali, the first day of the genocide. Rwandans are massacring each other and Westerners are fleeing the country. Jacqueline, a young Tutsi nanny for a Belgian family, finds herself abandoned. Hiding in the ceiling, she manages to escape the killers. Meanwhile, back in her village, her children are slaughtered. Chased, hunted down, she takes refuge in the forest. Coming across a wounded man, she cares for him and saves his life, feeling devastated despite the efforts of her grateful companion to cheer her up. Having lost everything, including her faith, she only has one idea in mind: to end it all.
BIOGRAPHY
Born in Brussels, Philippe Van Leeuw studied at the INSAS before moving to Los Angeles, where he studied at the American Film Institute. On his return to Europe, he worked as a director of photography for documentaries, institutional videos and advertising. That?s when he met Bruno Dumont, the director of La vie de Jésus (1996), first feature film on which he worked as a cinematographer. Le jour où Dieu est parti en voyage is his first film as a director.
