Buta, southern Burundi. A school, scene of a massacre during the war between Hutus and Tutsis, once more welcomes students of both ethnic groups. These students begin the task of remembering, turning a scene of horror into a scene of enlightenment. In this rerun, Magume represents the task of shattered Burundi. The students offer their voices, their questions, their tales and their identity in the hope that this mask will once more take shape, reconciled with itself at last.
