In the aftermath of one of the bloodiest civil wars in recent history, two youngsters leave Kigali for a job in a remote region of Rwanda. En route they visit the Hutu family one lad left behind three years ago; his return angers his father, who is further distressed that the prodigal's travel companion is a Tutsi. As the son (Eric Ndorunkundiye) strives to make amends, his brooding orphaned friend (Jeff Rutagengwa) hardens his resolve to seek revenge against his own father's killer. Working with nonprofessional actors who improvised their dialogue, Korean-American director Lee Isaac Chung has crafted a taut, atmospheric drama (2007) that evokes the mythic while reflecting contemporary African realities. With Rwandan poet laureate Edouard B. Uwayo. In Kinyarwanda with subtitles. 94 min.
