Darren Hughes, a moviegoer whose recommendations have led me to some memorable and profoundly inspiring films over the last few years, has just posted about another one I’m adding to my must-see list.
Munyurangabo was one of my favorite films of 2007 and was far and away the best debut I saw all year. I’m really eager to see what [filmmaker Lee Isaac Chung] does next.
His in-depth article about the film, which includes a conversation with the filmmaker, has just been published in Sojourners, and you can read the whole thing here. There, he summarizes the film as “a poetic and beautifully humane snapshot of Rwanda as it exists today, nearly a decade and a half after the genocide.”
