Project Title

TREES OF PEACE

Project Logline

Centers on four women trapped in a small underground room fighting for their survival during the Rwandan Genocide. A heart wrenching true story of how these strangers formed an unbreakable bond over three months of captivity.

This Meets That

PANIC ROOM meets HOTEL RWANDA

Why Read It?

A taut thriller that never pulls a punch as you spend almost 3 months in a cramped cellar with four women during the Rwandan massacre. This is a tense and emotional movie. Presenting moral issues, real life drama, suspense, and a constant feeling of claustrophobia, this story never stops posing questions on humanity and morality. A compelling story about surviving a real-life horror.

Additional Work

Alanna wrote, produced, and directed the short film '1426 Chelsea Street'.
