As I previously posted, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum have joined forces with friend and fellow producer Reid Carolin to executive produce their first movie via their production company 33&Out.
The film is called ‘EARTH MADE OF GLASS‘, which is a moving documentary that follows the Rwandan President Paul Kagame and genocide survivor Jean-Pierre Sagahutu, and it will have it’s world premiere at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival this month.
Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair recently watched the documentary and gave a glowing endorsement of film…
“Earth Made of Glass is a truly inspirational film…this film shows how one country is navigating uncharted waters, providing a model for ending hatred and violence, alongside a transformation into one of Africa’s great success stories.”
On Sunday, April 18th single tickets will go on sale to downtown residents (at ticket outlets only, need proof of zip code below Canal Street) and on Monday, April 19th at 11AM EST single tickets will go on sale to the general public (Online, Phone, and Ticket Outlets).
For those who don’t know, 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.
Fans can watch the official trailer below…
‘EARTH MADE OF GLASS‘ is directed by Deborah Scranton. She also directed ‘The War Tapes’ (short-listed for the Oscar in 2007), which influenced how they made Chan’s 2008 Iraq war drama ‘Stop-Loss‘. You can become fans of the film on Facebook and follow the movie on Twitter too.
