Rising From The Ashes 

When: Thu., April 24, 6 p.m. 2014
Price: $11-$15

Building a national cycling team for Rwanda was the easy part. The difficult bit involved caring for athletes, most of whom were malnourished, couldn't read or write, and had never received health care. All of them suffered the traumatic psychological effects of the 1994 genocide that killed 800,000 Rwandans. Their story is told in an award-winning documentary, Rising From the Ashes, screening at 7 tonight at Stargazers Theatre (10 S. Parkside Drive, risingfromashesthemovie.com). Tickets are $10 in advance at tiny.cc/2pehex, $15 at the door. The film is presented by CSprings Bike Initiative, and tonight's event will double as a meet-and-greet for this new group that's working to develop an information hub for "all things bike" in the region. — Mary Jo Meade
