The film, "Kinyarwanda," filmed by Alrick Brown, has a unique perspective on the Rwandan genocide, as well as the Islamic religion widely practiced in Rwanda. I have mixed feelings about this specific film. I liked and also disliked the flashback factor integrated in the film. It was very cool and unique, but it also made the film much harder to follow. It was a very cool touch that the director added into the making of the film. Director, Alrick Brown, is from Kingston, Jamaica, and he served in the peace corps for several years. Therefore, Brown has a multicultural perspective on many world issues, this including the Rwandan genocide. Often portrayed in a negative way, Alrick Brown shows the hidden good side of the people stuck within the Rwandan genocide. This is often something we miss with American films -- the different global perspectives on a subject. What we may think in America and our views could be totally twisted to what the actual impact and turnout to the event ended up being in different countries where those problems take place. Other countries' views could be totally twisted to what we think happened, so it is refreshing to receive a clean, global perspective from a person who knows more about the Rwandan culture than I do.
