Ndacyayisaba's Note of Intention - "Sarah"

Dear Cast and Crew,
First all I would like to let you know that I am fun of Action movie like “Sarah” because in my own small way I want to entertain and engage an audience and try to make a difference. I like to tell stories about ideas that I face in my everyday life and go beyond and explore some more true stories around the world which I believe can inspire others. I need to feel a personal resonance with the stories I try to tell
I am thrilled to embark on this incredible journey of bringing "Sarah" to life. This film holds a special place in my heart and to most fellows Rwandan, and I am honored to have such a talented team joining me on this artistic endeavor. Together, we will create a cinematic experience that engages, captivates, and inspires audiences around the world.
At its core, "Sarah" is a story about the Thriller, action of life and the pursuit of family. It delves into the depths of our characters' emotions, exploring the universal themes of honor, sacrifice, and the choices we make when faced with extraordinary circumstances.
Through this film, I aim to create a visually stunning and emotionally resonant narrative that transcends the boundaries of time and culture. I want the audience to feel immersed in the world we are creating, to be transported to a realm where experience come alive, and where the echoes of culture traditional dance will be revealed.
With a remarkable cast, skilled crew, and a commitment to excellence, I believe that "Sarah" will transcend the boundaries of traditional Rwandan storytelling. It will invite viewers to reflect upon their own richest Rwandan African descendent as this film will related to the actual real life of everyday.
