It's a film that's received plenty of coverage here at S&A and now New Yorkers have a chance at taking a sneak peak at this award-winning production tonight in celebration of IFP's Independent Film Week. Rooftop Films and IFP have joined forces for this special event which takes place at 8pm/est in Central Park.

Kinyarwanda, which was directed by Alrick Brown, won the World Cinema Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. The film depicts two communities coming together during the Rwandan genocide.

Story recap:

At the time of the 1994 Rwandan genocide, the Mufti of Rwanda, the most respected Muslim leader in the country, issued a fatwa forbidding Muslims from participating in the killing of the Tutsi. As the country became a slaughterhouse, mosques became places of refuge where Muslims and Christians, Hutus and Tutsis came together to protect each other. KINYARWANDA is based on true accounts from survivors who took refuge at the Grand Mosque of Kigali and the madrassa of Nyanza. It recounts how the Imams opened the doors of the mosques to give refuge to the Tutsi and those Hutu who refused to participate in the killing

.

The film will be released theatrically this fall by the African-American Film Festival Releasing Movement (AFFRM) For more info on tonight's screening, please go HERE. Trailer below.
