A Fundraiser Film Screening presented by Cyclists for Cultural Exchange
Please join us for a very special screening of Rising From Ashes (USA, 2012), a feature-length documentary film about Team Africa Rising (formerly Team Rwanda). Seven years in the making, this is a story of redemption, hope and second chances. The film follows USA cycling legend Jock Boyer as he moves to Rwanda to help a group of struggling genocide survivors pursue their dream of a national team. As they set out against impossible odds both Jock and the team find new purpose as they rise from the ashes of their past. With local ties to the Monterey Bay Area, Team Africa Rising is close to the hearts of many people in the local community. All proceeds will benefit the Rising From Ashes Foundation and support their work to inspire and educate global audiences into meaningful action, raise vital resources for cycling programs on the ground in Africa, and apply the ideals of conflict resolution in these communities.
