Rohingyas: Workings of a Crime

Hundreds of villages burned. Mass rapes and large-scale massacres. 700,000 Rohingyas forced into exile.

At first sight, this surge of hate seemed to come nowhere. But emptying a territory of its population in a few weeks requires a minimum of organisation and anticipation. It is a pre-meditated act and needs to be planned.

Filmed in both Myanmar and Bangladesh, this film investigates the premeditated nature of ethnic cleansing against the Rohingya minority.
