Life After Death // Ep. 12 – Mercy on the Orphans

 

Part 12 of 12

From the filmmaker, Joe Callander:

“This is one of my favorite parts of the film. Enric Sifa, a Rwandan now living in the states, recorded the song. In the theatrical version, I had a big-sounding a cappella choral arrangement, but I think Enric’s quiet, solo version works just as well, if not better. There are only 3 shots in the whole film that directly reference the genocide, and they’re in this sequence. After not directly addressing it visually for the whole film, my intention with these three shots in the final moment of the film was to show that the demons Kwasa battles are very real and will always haunt him, to one degree or another. ”
