Film Screening: Football Rwanda, Fields of Memories (2014)

A film telling the history of Rwanda through sports and its recovery from genocide.


The Wiener Library is delighted to be hosting one of the first UK screenings of the 2014 documentary film ‘Football Rwanda, Fields of Memories’, directed by Francois Xavier-Destors. The film tells the history of Rwanda through sports. It explains the different steps that led to the genocide, with the aim of relating a story that too many people still ignore. It's a project which has been put together for the past three years in collaboration with Dream Team Football Academy and FHPU project, and many other youth led football groups all around Rwanda. The film has given a platform to many former football players to speak about how football created acts of solidarity throughout the country's history; the film raises the question of a possible reconstruction of Rwandan society through football.
Survivor Eric Murangwa and founder of FHPU Project, along with the film’s director Marie Thomas-Penette will introduce the film.
