What is the main idea of hotel Rwanda?

The main idea of Hotel Rwanda is to show people what actually happened in 1994, as hardly any information got out about it.

It was also made to show the world Paul Rusesabagina. He was an ordinary hotel manager, saved over 1200 lives by letting them stay at his hotel. He stared death in the face more than once, and still kept his cool. He even said "To die without doing anything is a waste and a failure."
