“There is no den in the wide world to hide a rogue. Commit a crime, and the EARTH is MADE OF GLASS.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
The couple has joined forces with friend and fellow producer Reid Carolin to executive produce their first film via their new production company 33&Out.
‘EARTH MADE OF GLASS‘, a moving documentary that follows the Rwandan President Paul Kagame and genocide survivor Jean-Pierre Sagahutu, will be the first movie to carry the 33&Out production company title.
The new documentary follows a president and a citizen—bound together by a profound love of country and an unquenchable desire to see the truth revealed— as they fight to uncover the mystery behind a murder and France’s hidden role in the horrific 1994 Rwandan genocide. This powerful investigative documentary from the director of The War Tapes (best doc, TFF ’06) is driven by the inspiring and uplifting stories of Kagame and Sagahutu.
On Nov 11th, 2008, President Paul Kagame’s closest aide, Rose Kabuye, is arrested by France on charges of terrorism. Meanwhile, Jean Pierre scours the countryside in search of clues to his father’s murder fifteen years ago. With the fate of both a country and a family hanging in the balance, Jean Pierre and the President fight to uncover and expose the truth, each ultimately coming face-to-face with the same choice: to take revenge or turn the other cheek.
