Finding Hillywood

Dir. Leah Warshawski, Christopher Towey
2013, 57miin

 

This moving documentary chronicles the birth of Rwanda’s burgeoning film industry (nicknamed Hillywood after the country’s terrain) as a generation of artists turn to filmmaking as a means of processing their country’s painful past. Their quest to build a truly Rwandan cinema—films made by, for, and about Rwandans—is a powerful testament to art’s capacity to heal.

 
Imfura

Dir. Samuel Ishimwe
2018, 36min
In Kinyarwanda with English Subtitles

 

Winner of the Silver Bear for Best Short Film at the 2018 Berlinale, this incantatory memory piece traces the journey of a young man who travels back to the home of his mother who disappeared during the Rwandan genocide.
