In the Tall Grass - Screening at UCLA in February

Choices is pleased to announce that "In the Tall Grass" will have a public screening at UCLA on Wednesday, February 7th at 7pm.

In the Tall Grass picks up where Hotel Rwanda left off, focusing on the Hutu and Tutsi as they struggle through Rwanda’s unique reconciliation process Gacaca, a network of grassroots community courts. With unprecedented access, this powerful documentary follows a survivor through this historic process as she confronts the man she says murdered her husband and children, giving audiences a stark and terrifying look at how the genocide of 1994 continues to shape the lives of Rwandans today. She receives some justice, and her village finally faces their pain, but she is only one story in hundreds of thousands.

The film's director, J Coll Metcalfe, will take part in a Q&A session after the screening. Admission is free and open to the public.

The screening will take place at UCLA, 190 Royce Hall. Parking is available in Lot 5.

This screening is sponsored by the UCLA African Studies Center and Choices.
