Restless City tells the story of an Africa immigrant surviving on the fringes of New York City where music is his passion, life is a hustle, and falling in love is his greatest risk.I've seen Restless City and it's exactly what black cinema needs. I'll talk more about the film later but it's a definite must-watch. It screens on Friday, Nov 4th at 4:45pm and Saturday at 4:15pm.
I Will Follow (that played at last year's AFI Fest). I haven't seen this one yet but it looks promising. Kinyarwanda screens on Saturday, Nov. 5th at 1:15pm and Monday at 7pm.
During the 1994 Rwandan genocide, as the country became a slaughterhouse, mosques became places of refuge where Muslims and Christians, Hutus and Tutsis came together to protect each other. Inspired by true stories KINYARWANDA interweaves six tales that provide a complex and real depiction of life and human resilience in the face of unimaginable danger.
