Rwanda: Beneath the Surface from Spike Productions on Vimeo.

We produced a documentary film which broadcast the story of Rwanda successfully clearing its country of landmines to a global audience. Rwanda – beneath the surface is narrated by Kate Adie, the renowned correspondent and journalist, who had first hand experience of the Genocide in Rwanda in 1994’.  She was the perfect person to front this documentary

The film premiered at the Cartegena Mine Free World conference which happens every five years and is the biggest of its kind with the highest level politicians, diplomats and operators in mine action attending. The film was also selected by the London International Documentary Festival, billed as one of the most important festivals in the world

The documentary shows how landmines have affected the country and how its economy which is based on agriculture can now start to grow again because the land is safe to farm.

Spike Productions have worked with the Mines Awareness Trust before; Warren Mauger managing director of Spike Productions was delighted to be involved in this project as it is one of the main reasons Spike was set up, to make films that make a difference;

“Films like this make everyone at Spike very proud, we have had a great opportunity to work with an organisation we have huge respect for making a difference to peoples lives around the world. Their job is to make the land safe for people to rebuild their lives, our job is to document this, tell as many people as possible and  especially those involved in Landmine action”
