Windhoek & Berlin Screenings of "Imbabazi - The Pardon" in Commemoration of the Rwandan Genocide, 26 & 27 April 2014

The Windhoek Branch of AfricAvenir is commemorating the 20th anniversary of the 1994-Rwandan Genocide by screening the Namibian Premiere of the Rwandan film „Imbabazi - The Pardon“ at the Goethe-Centre Windhoek on Saturday, 26 April 2014 at 7 pm.

With director Joel Karekezi in attendance the film will also be screened at Hackesche Höfe Kino in Berlin on Sunday, 27 April 2014 at 17h30 to screening of the awarded feature film "Imbabazi - The Pardon".

In Rwanda in 1994, Manzi and Karemera are best friends who seem to be inseparable, until the inexorable forces of history and violence tear them apart. After the death of Rwanda’s Hutu president plunges the country into ethnic civil war, Manzi must choose between friendship and family, and Karemera pays the horrific price. Fifteen years later, news of Manzi’s release from prison throws Karemera’s life into chaos. Karemera attempts to return his childhood friend to prison, while Manzi struggles with his own guilt. As the former friends search for justice and absolution, they both find themselves at odds with a society eager to forget the trauma of the past. Can Manzi and Karemera remain true to themselves and also come to terms with their past?

“Imbabazi is both filled with sorrow and life turning surprises. An encounter of two childhood friends during one of 20th century’s most horrifying genocide.” sev-magazine (The films to watch in 2014)

“Rwandan filmmaker Joel Karekezi has crafted a beautiful film that reflects the horror of past genocide but advocates for reconciliation and a brighter future in the next generation.“ SIFF.


The screening in Berlin will be followed by a discussion with director Joel Karekezi as well as a samll reception in the cinema foyer.
