 Plz Show This Movie Wherever You Can

I went to a showing last night at my Church, and it has truly Blessed me. It was so amazing, they actually got the Holy Spirit in a person’s heart on tape. Here is the link to their website, please contact them to setup a showing at your Church or wherever you can.

Could you forgive a person who murdered your family? This is the question faced by the subjects of As We Forgive, a documentary about Rosaria and Chantal–two Rwandan women coming face-to-face with the men who slaughtered their families during the 1994 genocide. The subjects of As We Forgive speak for a nation still wracked by the grief of a genocide that killed one in eight Rwandans in 1994. Overwhelmed by an enormous backlog of court cases, the government has returned over 50,000 thousand genocide perpetrators back to the very communities they helped to destroy. Without the hope of full justice, Rwanda has turned to a new solution: Reconciliation.

But can it be done? Can survivors truly forgive the killers who destroyed their families? Can the government expect this from its people? And can the church, which failed at moral leadership during the genocide, fit into the process of reconciliation today? In As We Forgive, director Laura Waters Hinson and narrator Mia Farrow explore these topics through the lives of four neighbors once caught in opposite tides of a genocidal bloodbath, and their extraordinary journey from death to life through forgiveness.

The Campaign
As We Forgive reveals perhaps the greatest untold story coming out of Africa today. Rather than another account of African despair, this documentary tells of Rwanda’s rebirth through the reconciliation of victims and killers. It’s a film about what Africa can teach us. As such, the film’s mission is to expose people across America and beyond to the potential that reconciliation has to transform families, neighborhoods, cities, and even nations.

We are launching a national outreach campaign to screen As We Forgive in communities across the US. Our hope is to inspire a wider discussion on the need for reconciliation in our personal lives, our institutions and even in our governments. We are looking for volunteers as well as non-profit and corporate partnerships to join us in this mission, so please contact us at info@asweforgivethose.com.

We’re gearing up to take this show on the road! If you’re interested in hosting a screening of AWFT presented by filmmaker Laura Waters Hinson at your university, in your local theater, church, home, wherever, please email Suzanne for details: suzanne@asweforgivethose.com
