Join me, and the CINEMATIQ Magazine teamat the 42nd St. AMC Theater! I will introduce the 4:45pm, Friday, December 2nd, screening of KINYARWANDA.
I am proud to support the efforts of ImageNation and Urbanworld of the AFFRM (African American Film Festival Releasing Movement) in presenting the New York City theatrical release of the film KINYARWANDA. The winner of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival’s World Cinema Audience Award, this intimate portrayal is the first film produced by Rwandans, about the tragedy of 1994.
In Alrick Brown’s moving directorial feature debut, a young Tutsi woman and a young Hutu man fall in love amidst chaos, a soldier struggles to foster a greater good while absent from her family, an imam saves countless lives, and a priest grapples with his faith in the face of unspeakable horror. Six intimate stories are interwoven to illustrate both tragedy and triumph.
WHEN: Friday, December 2, 2011
WHERE: AMC THEATER 42ND STREET, 234 West 42nd St. • New York, NY • (212) 398-2597

ABOUT AFFRM: “In essence, what we’re doing is empowering ourselves by distributing our own images. There are robust black film organizations all over the country. Our goal was to organize ourselves into a releasing entity, and our mission is to support black cinema in a very specific way – by offering a handful of black indies a theatrical release,” explained founder Ava DuVernay. “We simply want to offer African-Americans quality black films, while at the same time create a safe haven for filmmakers of color to share their stories, their way.”
Looking forward to seeing you there!
