Shooting Dogs


Marie Motagoma speeds away.

Obviously ETO two lap time triumph.

The crowd is going wild here.

The crowd... Come on the crowd is going wild!

Thank you. Thank you, crowd.

Look, even the Belgians can't stay away. There's

Capitaine Delon, soldier and part time pastry chef.

Wave to Capitaine Delon.

Hello captain!

Yeah, prodigally

hysterical excitement of Belgian.

Who said that UN

weren't athletic fans? I deny it.

Was it someone else?

It certainly wasn't me.

And here comes Marie!

She's coming back.

It's looking very good for the young lady.

Time's fantastic!

I think she'll be able to set

a new world record!

We're live now to Francois, a man on

the ground. What's his analysis so far?


Hey Joe.

Okay, great analysis there from our school

groundsman as ever. Thanks for that.

And here we are.

Come on, crowd.

We're back now with Joe Conor. And she is in

the home strike. And she's looking very good.

She's looking incredibly powerful.

She's making all the way round here.

And I think she might just do it.

Three, two... I can't believe it!

It's a new world record here at the ETO.

Are we gonna celebrate

in our traditional fashion?

- Your teacher is crazy.

- I know.

Tell me Christopher,

how are your doing these days?

Full of the joys of Africa.

Tell him we miss him.

No Isabel, I don't want you

falling in love with Joe.

He is only here for the year.

I'm not having you pining.

For most, it will be fitty.

Chewing the wires again here, ladies.

No connection.

Bye, ladies.

What's this?

It's Ditu.


What is Ditu?

The shop is that way, mate.

But my father's house is this way.

It will be rude not to visit him.

You know, you wouldn't wanna be in

a hurry in this country, would you.

My father has been making banana bier.

Whatever happens next,

let him make you try it.

- Why?

- It's disgusting.

He says:
'Do you want to drink?'


That is disgusting.

Oh, smell that!

What is that, Irish blossom?

- I think that smell is from sewage.

- What?

You know the problem with you Francois,

is that you never stop and smell the roses.

- What roses?

- Any roses.

Tell me where the roses are

and I will smell them.

Hey look, what's that?

- Francois Kuseef.

- Joe!

Sex - male.

Appaling photographs!

Who were they?


Well, I know you, don't I?

You go to my school sometimes.

Aaron, isn't it?

Make it every day next time.

What have you got for me?

Passion fruit today.

What are those men doing?

They're making a list of

Tutsi families in the area.


Hi mom, it's me.

Listen to this.

Those are sounds of rush hour in Kigali.

I sent you a package last week so

it will be right in the middle of next year.


I'm sorry.

So yes, that's about it, really no use.

I hope your knee is better.

I guess I...

Rachel. What's the news?

I wanna good bier.

Not that local sh*t.

Hi, Joe.

Two beer.

What's the matter?

Penapocachera, covering the peace around here.

Mostly Tutsis.

All of a sudden this bunch of Hutu folks

turn out stumbling into Tutsis and shoot.

- Shoot?

- Yeah.

And the police just doing 'f*** off'.

You alright?


This place is supposed to be a point where Hutu and Tutsi can

live together in peace and harmony like Cabernet and Merlot,

all blended together into

one glorious Bordeaux.

I guess, Rome wasn't built in a day.

Yeah, never will be when your government

says that Tutsis are scum.

So when some old granny gets her face

half sliced, it's obviously Tutsi provocation.

Hey Rach, where's my f***ing beer?

Sorry, Joe.

No worries.

God bless.

Alright, come on.
