SYNOPSIS
In a Kigali, Rwanda marketplace, local adolescent boy Munyurangabo and his friend, Sangwa, swipe a machete from a vendor and hit the road together. Each young man is haunted by the ghosts of past experiences. Munyurangabo lost both parents to the Rwandan genocide and now embarks on a quest for swift justice; Sangwa left home years prior and longs to return. So begins director Lee Isaac Chung's feature Liberation Day. The two young men at the heart of the story commence a journey to Sangwa's home, where they remain for several days, but they must soon confront the reality of the racial and tribal differences between them: one is a Hutu, the other a Tutsi, and as Sangwa's parents remind their son, members of the two groups are never supposed to consort with one another -- making the boys' friendship highly inadvisable.

COMMENTS
"It is in every frame a beautiful and powerful film -- a masterpiece." (Chicago Sun-Times)

"Chekhov's principle of drama is in full effect, but what's remarkable about this film is how it slowly steers its way from portent to poetry." (Time Out New York)
