It's scheduled to drop later on today, but we've got it for you first... :)
Here's the official AFFRM trailer for the release movement's 2nd film, Alrick Brown's 2011 Sundance award-winner Kinyarwanda, which will be distributed theatrically, opening on Friday, December 2 in 8 cities nationwide: New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Philadelphia and Seattle; as well as 3 new opening week cities that have been added: Chicago, Washington DC and San Francisco.
Alrick Brown's drama, which is also his feature directorial debut, won the Audience Award in the World Cinema Drama category, at this year's Sundance Film Festival, as well as the Grand Prize at the prestigious Skip City Film Festival in Japan last week, indicative of its universally-accessible themes.
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.
We'll be further covering the film leading up to its December 2nd release, including an interview with director Alrick Brown.
