Intore offers a rare and powerful look at how Rwanda survived a tragic past by regaining its identity through music, dance, and the resilience of a new generation. Rwandan filmmaker Eric Kabera’s triumphant story features performances from the country’s top traditional and commercial artists in music and dance, interwoven with poignant interviews with genocide survivors and perpetrators, Rwandan leaders, Hollywood elites and emerging artists who bring fresh genius to a struggling land.
Followed by discussion with Jacqueline Najuma Stewart (BCH curator, UChicago Cinema and Media Studies).
