rooftop films presents lee isaac chung's munyurangabo


This is for my people in New York. This weekend, Rooftop Films will be holding a screening of Lee Isaac Chung's critically-acclaimed Munyurangabo, "a stunning neo-realist drama about revenge and friendship in post-genocide Rwanda." I haven't seen the film, but I've heard nothing but great things, and it looks absolutely incredible. Here's the New York Times review of the film: Rwanda, Speaking in Its Own Voice.

Catch it this Saturday, August 23, 8:00pm on the roof of The Old American Can Factory in Gowanus Park/Park Slope. Yup, outdoors. Before the show there will be a live performance by Twi the Humble Feather, presented by Sound Fix Records. Sounds like it's going to be a really cool screening, and a great way to spend a summer night. For more information about the event, go here.
