When: Fri., March 30, 7 p.m. 2012
Citizens for Global Solutions and the Middlewest Film Institute are pleased to sponsor the screening of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival World Cinema Audience Choice Award winner, Kinyarwanda, 7 p.m. at the Earth House on Friday, March 30. The film’s Director/Producer Alrick Brown is scheduled to attend.
Alrick Brown's drama, which is also his feature directorial debut, won the Audience Choice Award in the World Cinema Drama category at last year's Sundance Film Festival, the Crystal Heart Award at the Heartland Film Festival as well as the Grand Prize at the prestigious Skip City Film Festival in Japan indicative of its universally-accessible themes. Alrick was listed in “25 New Faces of Independent Film” by Filmmaker Magazine in October 2011.
Kinyarwanda is about a young Tutsi woman and a young Hutu man who fall in love amidst chaos, a soldier struggles with being absent from her family to foster a greater good, and a priest grapples with his faith in the face of unspeakable horror.
