"KINYARWANDA": THE HORRORS OF THE RWANAN GENOCIDE @ Meta House
In 1994, civil war broke out in Rwanda, leading to bloody infighting between the nation’s two principle ethnic groups, Hutus and Tutsis.
Rwandan filmmaker Alrick Brown examines this dark page in his country’s history in KINYARWANDA (2011, 100 mins, English).
He traces a handful of interconnected stories of both hatred and compassion amidst the bloodshed. As the varied characters organically intersect, both the diversity of perspectives and shared oneness of this horrible experience are intimately felt.
All night long @ Art Café: “BLACK FRIDAY” features the strange and spectacular electro-traditional mixtures of CONGOTRONICS and other African Beatz.
