This new documentary, The Dictator Hunter, looks to be a very interesting and informative film.  It is so important for people to educate themselves about issues like the brutal regime of former dictator Hissene Habre. We must listen to the stories of the victims so that we can learn from them and do our utmost to ensure that atrocities like those discussed in the film may never happen again.  It may seem to be an impossibility to put an end to torture and oppression, but even the smallest of gestures can make an impact and pave the way for real, lasting change.  Peace 🙂
