100 Days is a 2001 drama film directed by Nick Hughes and produced by Hughes and Eric Kabera. The film is a dramatization of events that happened during the Rwandan Genocide in 1994. The title of the film is a direct reference to the length of time that passed from the beginning of the genocide on April 6 until it ended in mid-July 1994.

The film was the first feature film made about the 1994 genocide and focuses on the life of a young, refugee Tutsi girl and her attempts to find safety while the genocide is taking place.[1] It was shot at locations where the Rwandan Genocide actually occurred.[2]
