About the Movie

FINDING HILLYWOOD chronicles one man's road to forgiveness, his effort to heal his country, and the realization that we all must one day face our past. In Hillywood (Rwanda’s film industry named for the country’s rolling hills) there is a blossoming film community. As Rwanda is still healing from the wounds of a cultural genocide almost 20 years ago, cinema has become a way for artists to express themselves and create cultural discussion. FINDING HILLYWOOD efficiently introduces the major players who set the beginning of the industry in motion. Eric Kabera founded the Kwetu Film Institute, directed the first Rwandan feature, and created the Rwanda Film Festival. Ayuub Kasasa Mago is a renaissance man within the industry, equally adept at directing, acting, scouting, or “fixing” just about anything a production might need. While it is easy to see that Eric is the heart of the industry, as the film continues Ayuub comes to represent its soul with his all-encompassing passion. FINDING HILLYWOOD is an award-winning documentary that functions as a Rwandan history lesson but also reveals the power of media as a catalyst for cultural healing. The film’s final act takes a breathtaking final turn as Hillywood connects the people of Rwanda with the goosebumps of seeing their culture represented on the biggest screen available.

Customer Reviews

A beautiful movie about the power of movies.

I love this film. Not only is it a testament to the power of stories to heal and united but it’s also a deep rumination on larger narratives of conflict, Rwanda and genocide. Watch it today!

Powerful

Storytelling at its best! Take an emotional journey with Ayuub as he fulfills his dream of bringing movies to the people of Rwanda.

Inspiring Film

This is a great film about how film can help heal people and a nation. It’s an inspiring story, and fun to watch. Teaches us a lot about the genocide and the ongoing recovery.
