"Kinyarwanda," directed by Alrick Brown.

SnagFilms (parent company of indieWIRE) has acquired exclusive digital rights to Alrick Brown's Rwandan genocide drama Kinyarwanda, AFFRM's sophomore theatical release last December (how many of you actually saw it?).

The 2011 Sundance Film Festival award winner will reportedly debut via SnagFilms partners such as Comcast Xfinity, FiOS, DIRECTV, iTunes, Amazon and VUDU.

As a recap, the films' official synopsis:

A young Tutsi woman and a young Hutu man fall in love amidst chaos, a soldier struggles with being absent from her family to foster a greater good, and a priest grapples with his faith in the face of unspeakable horror.

"SnagFilms is pleased to bring Kinyarwanda to digital audiences in the comfort of their homes... This is a powerful story, incredibly well told. We look forward to making this film available to film fans worldwide, as SnagFilms continues its rapid expansion into narrative films, and furthers its mission of bringing the best independent films – both narrative and documentary – to audiences via digital platforms,” said SnagFilms COO Stephanie Sharis.

No word on when it'll be available on any of the above SnagFilms partners.

    Well... I can't wait to see it here in Uganda! Rwanda is our neighbor and we have very close ties, as well as sharing deep wounds.

    This is one of a kind movie I'll always remember and will love thousands of people to watch too.

    I definitely supported it in Atlanta and it was a great film. AFFRM is a beautiful thing :)

    "Girlfriend ain't playing". I am so happy that things are happening with AFFRM and Ms Duvernay.
