Intore offers a powerful and rare look at how Rwanda survived its tragic past by regaining its identity through music, dance, and the resilience of a new generation.

It’s a story of triumph, survival, hope, and a lesson in how to forgive and live, through the eyes of a mother whose grief gives hope; an artist who chose to forgive rather than seek revenge; a maestro who brings together the National Ballet with an incredible touch of ge- nius; and a young man who’s determination and hard work has given the Rwandan culture a new dimension of identity and celebration. Through these characters and others, viewers will bear witness to how the nation rose above the ashes of a horrific 1994 genocide, to become a world model of post-conflict peace and unity.

The film features music performances from Rwanda’s top traditional and commercial artists in music and dance, interwoven with poignant interviews from genocide survivors and perpetrators who sit side-by-side; plus Rwandan leaders, legends, and Hollywood elite.

Produced by Rwanda Cinema Center, and Park Hill Entertainment in Association with the Kwetu Film Institute & the Rwanda Media Project.

Eric Kabera, founder of the Kwetu Film Institute and Hillywood with the Film Festival in Rwanda, has an impressive filmography that includes Africa United, an award-winning feature film about three youngsters from Rwanda who embark on an epic journey to the World Cup; Keepers of Memory, a documentary commemorating the 10th anniversary of the genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda; Through my Eyes, a documentary film about Rwandan youth reflecting on their past, present and future perspectives; and 100 Days, a riveting film recounting the legacy of the genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda .

Kabera has been recognized by the Director’s Guild of America, and is the 2012 recipient of the Pan African Film Festival’s prestigious African Creative Visionary Award.
