"Birds are singing in Kigali", directed by Joanna Krauze de Lendorff, Krzysztof Krauze, Poland 2017
Anna Keller is a Polish ornithologist specializing in carrion birds. She is doing research in Rwanda in 1994 when genocide breaks out, claiming hundreds of thousands of lives – mostly Tutsis. Anna flees with twenty-something Claudine, whose family has been murdered.
The two women have more in common than it first seems, as their shared history in Rwanda is gradually revealed. They try to start a new life in Poland, but easing the pain of the past proves difficult.
Directors Joanna Krauze de Lendorff and Krzysztof Krauze worked together for more than twenty years, and lived for some years in Rwanda. Krzysztof died in 2014, halfway through making this film, and Joanna finished it alone. She painstakingly sketches a portrait of two scarred women, tackling issues such as racism and social trauma. A story of loss and resilience.
