“Rising From Ashes,” directed by T.C. Johnstone, is an inspiring cycling documentary that tracks the development of a talented cycling team in post-genocide Rwanda.
The award-winning documentary follows Team Rwanda’s young riders as they excel in the sport and recover from the trauma of the Rwandan genocide. In on-camera interviews, the team members reveal their individual experiences and share what cycling means to them, their country, and their recovery.
The film also follows American stand-out cyclists Tom Richey and Jock Boyer as they coach the team and develop relationships with its members.
Brevard College will show “Rising From Ashes” on September 23, 2014 at 7:30 PM in Ingram Auditorium (formerly known as Dunham). Admission is $10 and free for Brevard College students with a student ID. Seating is limited.
