Come visit the new Eastern Avenue Branch Library on Wednesday, October 20 at 6:00 p.m. and enjoy a free movie, popcorn, and lemonade! This month Off-Beat Independent Films presents, “Munyurangabo.” After stealing a machete from a market in Kigali, Munyurangabo and his friend, Sangwa, leave the city on a journey tied to their pasts. Munyurangabo wants justice for his parents who were killed in the genocide, and Sangwa wants to visit the home he deserted years ago. Though they plan to visit Sangwa’s home for just a few hours, the boys stay for several days. From two separate ethnic groups, their friendship is tested when Sangwa’s wary parents disapprove of Munyurangabo, warning that “Hutus and Tutsis are supposed to be enemies.”
