Exactly two months ago W.C. Fields’ films donated films to the Rwanda Cinema Center/Kwetu Film Institute. On Sunday, August 12, 2012, under the stars, two W.C. Fields’ films were screened in Kigali, Rwanda. Dr. Harriet Fields shared with the audience that her grandfather performed in Africa, and said, “I am very happy for our grandfather to have a home in Africa, for Kwetu means Home in Swahili.” A magical experience for all, many attendees said they will remember the night forever. Eric Kabera, founder of the Kwetu Film Institute, said he wants to teach his students how to do comedy, so they and the country can laugh again. Eric shared that W.C. Fields’ comic genius is unmatched in the world today.
Next Saturday, 13th October 2012, the Rwanda Film Festival in collaboration with KWETU Residence inn will once again screen another W.C. Fields film and the sensational student film ‘Special Thievies’.
The ENTRANCE is absolutely FREE. The main feature starts at 7PM
