FILM INFORMATION

Dir. Joel Karekezi, Rwanda, GFI grant 2012.
After being imprisoned for the killing of ethnic Tutsis during the Rwandan genocide, Mansi must face the emotional and psychological consequences of his most personal crime: the murder of his best friend’s family.


Wilson Egessa, Okuyo Joel Atiku Prynce, Rehema Nanfuka
"In Rwanda in 1994, Manzi and Karemera are best friends who seem to be inseparable until the inexorable forces of history and violence tear them apart. After the death of Rwanda’s Hutu president plunges the country into ethnic civil war, Manzi must choose between friendship and family and Karemera pays the horrific price.

“Rwandan filmmaker Joel Karekezi has crafted a beautiful film that reflects the horror of past genocide but advocates for reconciliation and a brighter future in the next generation. The strong central performances from Wilson Egessa and Okuyo Joel Atiku Prynce bridge the film’s seeming narrative simplicity to a deeper emotional catharsis. As a survivor himself, Karekezi offers audiences a unique connection to the tragic events as well as an opportunity to search within for the forgiveness society needs to heal and flourish.” – San Francisco International Film Festival"
