French actress Sonia Rolland announced last week, via her website, that she's currently shooting her first documentary, Rwanda, Mon Amour (Rwanda, My Love).

The brief synopsis provided for the project explains the film as "through the eyes of Sonia, a documentary told in the first person about the birth[place] of the actress: Rwanda."

Rwanda, Mon Amour will be presented by Bagan Films and So Mad Productions.

A quick look at Bagan Films' website reveals that Rolland has another project in development there, a drama titled Une Vie Ordinaire (An Ordinary Life).

The synopsis for Une Vie Ordinaire is as follows:

Une Vie Ordinaire

Nadia and her little brother Gaël live alone with their mother in a council estate. Nadia has been taking care of Gaë for some time in the absence of their mother who is studying again 300 miles away from home. She calls her mother every night to tell her about her day.

After a fight at school, Nadia has been expelled from school and does not dare to tell her mum the truth. But her mother comes back home earlier than expected...

It would appear that Rolland is set to direct this drama, with French actors Aissa Maiga, Zinedine Soualem, and Sabrina Ouazini starring.

S&A will provide further details on both projects as they become available.
