    Might as well save this space for Lee Isaac Chung's third feature: Foolish Things. He talks about it here: This guy is unpredictable.

    Munyurangabo (2007)

    Links to similar Rwanda-genocide-themed films: Hotel Rwanda (2004); Shooting Dogs / Beyond the Gates (2005), Shake Hands with the Devil (2007); we don't seem to have a thread for the Quebecois film Un dimance a Kigali / A Sunday in Kigali (2006). - - - Munyurangabo Like a bolt out of the blue, Korean American filmmaker Lee Isaac Chung achieves an astonishing and thoroughly masterful debut with "Munyurangabo," which is -- by several light years -- the finest and truest film yet on the moral and emotional repercussions of the 15-year-old genocide that wracked Rwanda. Pic's supremely confident, simple storytelling and relaxed, slightly impressionist visual style follow a conflict that emerges between two friends as one makes a long-delayed homecoming. This is -- flat out -- the discovery of this year's Un Certain Regard batch, and deserves loving care from arthouse distribs after a liberating and fruitful fest tour. . . . The sheer confidence and artistic will that 28-year-old Chung exercises here can't be overstated, especially in contrast to the few short films of little or no note he made during his brief stint as a Yale film student, and the fact that he wasn't even planning to make a feature while teaching at a Christian relief camp in Rwanda. . . .
