Geni is writer, director, and star Jackie Batsinduka’s first fully crowded-funded project. A daughter estranged from her mother returns home to confront their past, and its intrinsic link to the 1994 Rwandan genocide against the Tutsis. Starring opposite her mother, this is Batsinduka’s most personal story yet.
Official selection at Regent Park Film Festival 2019, Toronto Lift-Off Film Festival 2020, Montreal Black Film Festival 2020, and screened by the Feminist Art Collective, the Humming Collective, and Listen, Explore & Learn.
