Hate Radio brings the 1994 Rwandan genocide to life by reconstructing an hour-long broadcast by the Rwandan radio station Radio-Télévision Libre des Mille Collines, which throughout the genocide interspersed sports reports and the latest music hits with naked racist ideology and incitements to murder. With methodically built-up psychological manipulation, RTLM reached the entire Rwandan population; its broadcast could not be avoided.
