I've started reading through the feedback from the screening of the rough cut on April 21st. I'm impressed by how many people took the time to sit down and write out their thoughts... and at the quality of the overwhelmingly positive, constructive feedback.
I'm genuinely surprised at how much of a connection the audiences feel to this film, the story and the characters... especially given the current rough production values.
Here's some pull-quotes:
"As a Rwandan I felt that finally I was watching a film about Rwanda with real perspective... like I was watching one of my relatives speak to me."
"Amazing, captivating & enlightening"
"Poignant without being melodramatic. Very human."
... stuff like that makes it all worth it.
