Cycling film to premiere March 12

-A A +A

“Rising From Ashes,” the award-winning feature-length documentary about Team Rwanda, will premiere in Los Alamos, 7 p.m. March 12 at the Reel Deal Movie Theater. The event is co-sponsored by the Tuff Riders Mountain Bike Club and the Los Alamos Singletrack Association.
“Rising From Ashes” is an independent film about the development of a national cycling team in Rwanda, a country still affected deeply by the genocide that tore the East African nation apart in 1994.
Two worlds collide when cycling legend Jacques “Jock” Boyer moves to Rwanda in 2006 to help a group of struggling survivors of the genocide to pursue their dream of creating a national cycling team. Members of the fledgling team were children left orphaned by the genocide a decade earlier. As they set out against impossible odds, both Boyer — fighting his own past demons — and the team find new purpose as they rise from the ashes of their pasts through remarkable achievements, both big and small.
The documentary tells a story of redemption, hope and second chances. It is not about the bike; however, the bicycle becomes a tool that has helped change a nation.
Team Rwanda began as a cycling organization, but became so much more once organizers realized the greater needs of the athletes.
