Indie Trailer Sunday: Shake Hands with the Devil Trailer
Today's trailer is for an indie that has been on hold for quite a few years. Shake Hands with the Devil first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival way back in 2007. In fact, director Roger Spottiswoode actually directed another film (The Children of Huang Shi) while waiting for this to be released. Regent Releasing is finally bringing Shake Hands with the Devil to theaters in 2010 and has debuted a trailer for it on Apple. I'm featuring it for a few reasons. First, while some of the dialogue looks rough, the story looks incredible. Second, the cinematography and locations look gorgeous as well. It stars Roy Dupuis and Deborah Unger.

The story follows Emma, a journalist, as well as the personal journey of General Roméo Dallaire through the 1994 Rwandan genocide and how Dallaire's request for more aid went ignored by the United Nations.
Shake Hands with the Devil is directed by veteran Canadian filmmaker Roger Spottiswoode, of Under Fire, Shoot to Kill, Turner & Hooch, Tomorrow Never Dies, The 6th Day, and Spinning Boris previously. The screenplay was written by producer Michael Donovan and is based on General Roméo Dallaire's book of the same name. This first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival way back in 2007 and is now finally heading to theaters thanks to Regent Releasing. Shake Hands with the Devil finally hits limited theaters in early 2010.
