Cycling Movie at CU - Rising from Ashes

Hey, I am going to this movie, Rising from Ashes, and wanted to know if others wanted to join me.

Very cool story and should be a good movie

Movie Summary: Rising From Ashes, the title of T.C. Johnstone’s uplifting documentary about the creation of the first Rwandan National Cycling Team, has a double meaning. It refers not only to the tremendous spirit displayed by the athletes as they struggle to overcome the horrific legacy of the genocide that occurred a generation earlier, but also the personal redemption of the famed American cyclist who led them.

Check out this link for the trailer to see what the movie is about.

Showtime 7 pm.

If there is interest, we can also meet at the Sink on the Hill at 5.40 pm to catch the end of their happy hour for drinks and dinner. Just leave a comment if you want to attend HH as well as the movie.

If you haven't been to Muenzinger Auditorium before make sure you give yourself enough time to find it - it is pretty hidden in among CU buildings and courtyards.

    I would really recommend this movie as I thought it was an amazing story and an excellent film. Not to mention so beautiful cinematography of Rwanda.
    It might be playing at the Boulder Theater in November.

    Happy Hour and dinner at the Sink is on for pre-movie socializing. So I know what table size to grab let me know if you are joining us at the Sink or just at the movie.
    To make it easy for you to find us I will wear a bright blue v-neck [I know - I need someone to give me fashion advice...]
