Best of the Fest: Finding Hillywood
Finding Hillywood
Rwanda, USA, 2013, 61 minutes
Director: Leah Warshawski, Christopher Towey

Finding Hillywood is an award-winning documentary about the very beginning of Rwanda's film industry. Still healing from the wounds of a cultural genocide almost 20 years ago, cinema has become a way for artists to express themselves and create cultural discussion. See the inner-workings of running a film festival in the jungle, and meet some of the pioneers who volunteer to bring films to rural communities. It's a real-life example of the power of cinema to heal a man and a nation.

Preceded by

I Am Sarah Maple
USA, 2012, 13 minutes
Director: Ariel Fisher, Tyler Gurd

After being named winner of the '4 New Sensations' prize presented by the Saatchi Gallery, Sarah Maple's career as a young, feminist artist skyrocketed. However, her unabashed style incorporating feminist themes with her Muslim faith stirred up controversy that threatened her freedom as an artist as well as her safety. I Am Sarah Maple follows Sarah as she preps for her first solo show since the 'incident' and showcases her new-found ways to comment on feminism, religion and subvert societal norms with her infectious personality and not-so-G-rated humor.
