Here are some key sequences from the RWANDA-17 production:
This is a sequence where reporter Sorious Samura creates a link between the 1994 genocide and the story of the Rwandan Under 17 football team. There is no direct connection between the young footballers and the genocide because 17 years ago they haven’t even been born. However, indirectly they are all affected by the dark history of their country and in our film we need to explain where these youngsters are coming from.
This is a sequence where Sorious Samura meets the entrepreneur Albert Rudatsimburwa to talk about Rwanda’s impressive progress after the 1994 genocide. They also discuss potential pitfalls and the role of the Under 17 football team as an important force to inspire unity after the murderous Hutu/Tutsi divisions of the past.
This is a piece to camera from Sorious reflecting on his impressions from Rwanda’s Under-17 football team and their journey to the 2011 FIFA World Cup in Mexico.
