Munyurangabo Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

In a Kigali, Rwanda marketplace, local adolescent boy Munyurangabo and his friend, Sangwa, swipe a machete from a vendor and hit the road together. Each young man is haunted by the ghosts of past experiences. Munyurangabo lost both parents to the Rwandan genocide and now embarks on a quest for swift justice; Sangwa left home years prior and longs to return. So begins director [[Performer~P517588~Lee Isaac Chung~leeisaacchung]]'s feature Liberation Day. The two young men at the heart of the story commence a journey to Sangwa's home, where they remain for several days, but they must soon confront the reality of the racial and tribal differences between them: one is a Hutu, the other a Tutsi, and as Sangwa's parents remind their son, members of the two groups are never supposed to consort with one another -- making the boys' friendship highly inadvisable. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
