----- SC - Film - Finding Hillywood
By Halsey_Institute

7:00pm, Free, Rated PG-13
Recital Hall, Simons Center for the Arts
College of Charleston campus
54 St. Philip Street, Charleston, SC 29401
Q & A with the filmmaker, Leah Warshawski, and a reception by Brown’s Court Bakery to follow the film

Finding Hillywood is a documentary about the beginning of Rwanda’s film industry, and a real life example of how art heals. In Hillywood, Rwanda’s film industry named for the country’s rolling hills, there is a blossoming film community. Set amongst these rolling hills, the film chronicles one man’s road to forgiveness, his effort to mend his country, and the realization that we all must one day face our past. As Rwanda is still recovering from a cultural genocide almost 20 years ago, cinema has become a way for artists to express themselves and create cultural discussion. The films produced in Hillywood deal with “real time” Rwandan issues— from the government releasing genocide prisoners to drug addiction, to a forbidden relationship between a Hutu and a Tutsi. Finding Hillywoods Seattle-based filmmakers have created a documentary that functions as a Rwandan history lesson but also reveals the power of art as a catalyst for cultural healing.
