Description:
  [Screening @ Tiburon Film Society]

Rwanda & Juliet is a feature-length documentary that follows eccentric Ivy League professor emeritus Andrew Garrod to Kigali, Rwanda, where he mounts Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet with Rwandan college students from both Hutu and Tutsi backgrounds. Twenty years have passed since the 1994 Genocide that left 1,000,000 Tutsis dead. Predominantly orphans, the cast of young Rwandans, led by a stunning, strong headed Juliet, tackle their country's past and their own futures as hopes, expectations, pasts, personalities and cultures collide as opening night approaches.

“My only love sprung from my only hate,” reveals Juliet in Shakespeare’s beloved play about star-crossed lovers. Director Ben Proudfoot explores this thin line between love and hate in a new, surprisingly charming and uplifting feature documentary set in Kigali, Rwanda—the epicenter of the genocide that left a million dead two decades earlier.
