David Belton is a director, writer, and film producer. His experiences as a BBC reporter covering the 1994 Rwandan Genocide led him to write the original story and produce the film Shooting Dogs, directed by Michael Caton-Jones, which dramatizes the events at the Ecole Technique Officielle.[1] It was retitled Beyond the Gates for its 2007 U.S. release.[2] He has directed documentaries (for the BBC, Simon Schama's Power of Art, "The Silent War") and drama-documentaries and documentaries for PBS (God in America and The Amish) and dramas for the BBC (Ten Days to War). His book, When the Hills Ask for Your Blood was published in January 2014 by Doubleday.
