ABOUT THE 600 FILM

The 600 tells the little known story of a group of Rwanda Patriotic Army (RPA) soldiers trapped behind enemy lines at the outset of the Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda in 1994. The film contains eyewitness accounts of their counterattack against a much larger force, and the heroic rescues they made of civilians while under fire.

VENUE

Harrow School is one of the oldest and most prestigious schools in the world. The reception will take place in the OH Room and the film screening and panel discussion in their famous Speech Room.
