Abstract

The following research applies Boren’s theory “that the over exposure of crime films induces criminal activity within that society.” By analyzing post-Rwandan genocide crime films from a cultural anthropological perspective, contrary to Boren’s theory, Rwandan crime films are used to socially reconstruct a society, by means of reconciliation, acceptance and psychological ventilation.
