About Kinyarwanda 
In Alrick Brown’s moving directorial feature debut, a young Tutsi woman and a young Hutu man fall in love amidst chaos, a soldier struggles to foster a greater good while absent from her family, an imam saves countless lives, and a priest grapples with his faith in the face of unspeakable horror. Six intimate stories are interwoven to illustrate both tragedy and triumph.

KINYARWANDA will mark the second feature from AFFRM, the theatrical distribution entity powered by the nation's top black film festival organizations. The collective activates quality black independent films with simultaneous theatrical engagements in select cities.

AFFRM's inaugural feature was the critically-acclaimed drama, "I Will Follow", released in March 2011 to an opening weekend per screen average of $11,428 without a formal advertising or marketing budget.

ABOUT AFFRM: "In essence, what we’re doing is empowering ourselves by distributing our own images. There are robust black film organizations all over the country. Our goal was to organize ourselves into a releasing entity, and our mission is to support black cinema in a very specific way – by offering a handful of black indies a theatrical release," explained  founder Ava DuVernay. "We simply want to offer African-Americans quality black films, while at the same time create a safe haven for filmmakers of color to share their stories, their way."
