New IRIBA centre for Rwanda's multimedia heritage

In 2010, Assumpta Mugiraneza and film-maker Anne Aghion visited the famous BOPHANA Audiovisual Resource Center in Cambodia, established by renowned Franco-Cambodian filmmaker, Rithy Pahn. Upon their return to Rwanda, the two started to search for key material for a similar centre for multimedia heritage. Prior to the trip to Cambodia, the two women had collaborated in several films that Aghion shot in Rwanda in over ten years. Most of her works were about the emotional impact of the post-genocide justice and social reconstruction process.
