Serena Hotel has been screening Genocide movies since April 7, the beginning of the Commemoration Week to mark 16 years after the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi.
The movies screened on April 14 were: “The Day God Walked Away”, and “Keepers of Memories.”
Movie screenings started at 6:00 p.m, and were only attended by adults, who paid an entrance fee of Rwf 3000 only.
“The Day God Walked Away”
The movie follows the hallowing struggle for survival of a Tutsi woman during the Rwandan genocide of 1994.
Much to his credit, first-time writer director Philippe van Leeuw has slasher film with Rwandan pop singer Ruth Nirere in an astonishingly physical turn as a house maid hiding in the jungle and barely eluding her Hutu attackers.
“Keepers of Memory”
Through eyewitness accounts and gripping footage, director/producer Eric Kabera takes the viewer on an emotional journey into the 1994 Rwanda genocide against the Tutsi, its survivors, and the memorials created in the victims’ honour.
The 54 minutes film focuses on the personal accounts of men and women who watch over the sacred burial sites keeping the memories alive for future generations.
