Munyurangabo December 31, 1969

Synopsis: This acclaimed Rwandan drama--the first full-length, narrative film in the Kinyarwanda language--explores the friendship between two boys as they try to overcome the gap between the Hutus and Tutsis. Munyurangabo (Jeff Rutagengwa) and Sangwa (Eric Ndorunkundiye) escape the city of Kigali with two different purposes: the titular boy desires revenge for the death of his parents who were victims of genocide, while his friend wants to see his childhood home. However, when they arrive, Sangwa?s parents are unhappy to see his new friend because of his race. Nominated for an Independent Spirit Award, MUNYURANGABO played at a variety of festivals around the world, including Cannes, Berlin, and Toronto.
