Healing in Rwanda: Dealing with Legacies of the 1994 Genocide, presentation by Emmanuel Habimana

June 1, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm

What would it take you to forgive the murder of your family? What would you do if you had to choose between your life and those of 400 children? How would you redefine family if you were the only survivor in yours? And how would you react when the people who tried to exterminate your people were released from prison and returned to your community? These are some of the questions Emmanuel Habimana addresses in his documentary film Komora: To Heal.

Emmanuel Habimana is a filmmaker, public speaker and educational activist from Kigali, Rwanda. After surviving the 1994 Rwanda genocide, he became a youth organizer in Kigali, where he assisted fellow orphans of the genocide. He was trained in the National Unity and Reconciliation Commission, and is currently studying film production in Los Angeles.
