Filmed in Rwanda (only a few minutes of screen time) and South Africa.

Most vehicles seen in the film are right hand drive and thus inappropriate for Rwanda, where traffic drives on the right hand side of the road.

This film was about Paul Rusesabagina, a manager at the Hôtel des Mille Collines who used the hotel to protected 1,268 Tutsi and Hutu refugees from the Hutu Paramilitary, the Interahamwe during the Rwandan Genocide committed by the Interahamwe and the Hutu Militia, the Impuzamugambi at Kigali, Rwanda between the 7th April and the 15th July 1994.

The Rwandan Genocide began when the president of Rwanda, Juvénal Habyarimana and the president of Burundi, Cyprien Ntaryamira were assassinated when their plane was shot down over the Presidential Palace gardens in Kigali on the 6th April 1994.

The day after the assassinations of Habyarimana and Ntaryamira, on the morning of the 7th April, the Rwandan Prime Minister, Agathe Uwilingiyimana and her husband along with a group of ten Belgian UN Peacekeeping soldiers assigned to protect Prime Minister Uwilingiyimana and her husband were shot and killed by members of the Rwandan Presidential Guards at the UN Volunteer Compound in Kigali.

After the murders of Prime Minister Uwilingiyimana and her husband, their four children were found by a Senegalese UNAIMR military observer, Captain Mbaye Diagne who then drove the children to the Hôtel des Mille Collines, where they hid during the Rwandan Genocide, before being relocated to Switzerland.

Captain Diagne had saved as many as 1,000 Tutsi and Hutu refugees by hiding them in UN installations, he was later killed when a mortar shell had exploded near his Jeep, hitting him with shrapnel through the Jeep's rear window while waiting at a government checkpoint on the 31st May 1994.

After the genocide, the Interahamwe were pushed out of Rwanda and into the neighbouring countries including Zaire (now renamed the Democratic Republic of Congo).

In a later interview with the UK Independent reporter, Clare Rudebeck, Rusesabagina stated when people compare him to Oskar Schindler, he stated that he feels that if Schindler could be strong to save people for the three months of the mass genocide as Rusesabagina did, then he would agree with the comparison but believes that Schindler was braver as he saved 1,100 people during the six years of the Second World War.
