I met Eric KABERA during the filming of ‘some times in april’ but. was not selected during casting. however worked behind the camera in the production of that movie.

RFF:What is the role of film to a country like Rwanda?
FRANCIS: I think film helps Rwandans learn and shape their History. Secondly, film can be used to ensure peaceful co-existence between different ethnic groups. Thirdly, film reminds Rwandans of their past, present and where they will be in the future. You see that plays a major role in development because film industry provide jobs.

RFF: Where do you see hillywood in seven years from today?

FRANCIS: I would give a big ‘yes’ 100% because I love being in film.

RFF: What impact do you think Rwanda Film Festival is creating to Rwanda?
FRANCIS: I am sure it is going to make a difference. The face of Rwanda is going to be changed through the festival and I believe this is going to motivate foreign and local investment and put Rwanda on the world map.

RFF: What is your favorite Rwandan movie and why?

FRANCE: “Inzozi” I did what I thought I could not do. I think there is no actress in Africa who can do what I did. Others use substances to induce tears but my tears were real. I cried! Others use substances like onions but I did it naturally!.

RFF: If an upcoming filmmaker approached you for taking part in his or her movie, what would be your response?

FRANCE: It depends with the filmmaker intentions and the type of film. If it is for education I can act free of charge but if it’s for business, I would ask for money. I would also love to be a millionaire! Who hates money anyway?

FRANCE: Film is educative and gives Rwandan confidence and hope and that changes the negative perception that some people have on Rwanda.
