A Ride with Rafiki from Rwanda

Two worlds collide when fabled cyclist Jock Boyer guides a team of Rwandan genocide survivors to the Olympics. Rising from Ashes is about Team Rwanda, redemption, recovery, and riding the bike.

After a screening in Seattle, I rode with Rafiki, a member of the team who said, team is team.

That means, “the freedom of the bike gives purpose to their pain.”

Rising from Ashes soundtrack samples were composed by Joshua Myers. Find the documentary online and at a screening near you.

My daily shooter is Sony a9 with a vertical grip and various Sigma lenses attached like the 14mm 1.4 Art. Find more recommendations on our store page.
