"Looks at the power of film to change and heal, not just an individual, but entire communities."
- Mark Bell, Film Threat
The inspirational 2013 documentary Finding Hillywood explores the budding film industry in Rwanda, and shows the power of cinema as a catalyst for healing and change.
The film centers around Ayuub Kasasa Mago, a local filmmaker whose mother died in the 1994 genocide. A coordinator for the Rwanda Film Festival (now in its 9th year), Mago leads a crew that travels from town to town for Hillywood, the section of the festival that presents locally made movies outdoors on giant inflatable screens, bringing joy and inspiration to tens of thousands in rural Rwandan communities.
