UK PREMIERE: KINYARWANDA
Saturday 3 December, 7.00pm
KINYARWANDA tells the story of faith in the face of unspeakable horror. It is 1994 and as Rwanda becomes a slaughterhouse, mosques became places of refuge where Muslims and Christians, Hutus and Tutsis came together to protect each other. KINYARWANDA interweaves six different tales based on true accounts from survivors telling a truly extraordinary and hitherto little known story.
This special preview screening is the first time the film has been shown in the UK. KINYARWANDA was the Winner of the World Cinema Audience Award at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
The screening will be followed by a special panel discussion on the contemporary challenges of representing faith in film, featuring Kinyarwanda producer and faith-inspired filmmaker Deatra Harris; founding director of the Zanzibar International Film Festival Imruh Bakari, veteran journalist and commentator Fuad Nahdi, Insight Festival director John Forrest among others.
