100 Days is the first acclaimed feature film produced by Eric Kabera and directed by Nick Hughes. The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival 2001. Won many accolades around the world but this is a very difficult film to promote and be proud of. A very painful experience for the surviving community and those who know what befell the Tutsi in 1994 Genocide against them.

In 1994, Josette, a beautiful, young Tutsi girl and her family struggle to survive the Rwandan government's genocidal policy by taking refuge in a church supposedly protected by UN forces. Meanwhile, Josette's brother is murdered in an attempt to escape the rebel army. 100 Days was shot in a Kibuye church, the site of an actual massacre. Four Rwandan investors joined producer Eric Kabera, who lost 32 of his own family members, and Nick Hughes to make this powerful monument to the Rwandan genocide.

Eric Kabera, founder of the Kwetu Film Institute and Hillywood with the Film Festival in Rwanda, has an impressive filmography that includes Africa United, an award-winning feature film about three youngsters from Rwanda who embark on an epic journey to the World Cup; Keepers of Memory, a documentary commemorating the 10th anniversary of the genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda; Through my Eyes, a documentary film about Rwandan youth reflecting on their past, present and future perspectives; and 100 Days, a riveting film recounting the legacy of the genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda .

Kabera has been recognized by the Director’s Guild of America, and is the 2012 recipient of the Pan African Film Festival’s prestigious African Creative Visionary Award.
