In a fashion similar to The Kite Runner, Hotel Rwanda details the atrocities that took place during Rwanda’s genocide and the brave souls who tried to save the lives of many ethnic victims. Following his experience in Hotel Rwanda, Don Cheadle became involved in bringing public awareness to the war torn region of Sudan in the film Darfur Now.
