Kinyarwanda: a primer

Director Alrick Brown
 

...After earning his master’s from Tisch, Brown continued making shorts while consulting for other filmmakers. One of those people was Ishmael Ntihabose, a Rwandan filmmaker who was trying to make a feature about the 1994 genocide that occurred in his country. “We were e-mailing back and forth through a Peace Corps contact for several years,” says Brown,” “and when I got there I realized Ishmael needed a lot more than just consulting to pull this off.”

These videos and links can speak about the film way better than I can, since I haven't even seen it yet. It'll be the closing night film at the Urbanworld Film Festival this weekend, on Saturday night at 7:30 at the AMC 34th Street in Manhattan.
