Sometimes in April (2005)

Set in the days leading up to the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, the story centers on two brothers — one a radio broadcaster and the other a captain in the Rwandan army. As they witness the slaughter of close to a million people over ethnicity, the political atmosphere divides the siblings as members of their own family are killed. The cast included Idris Elba.
