Rising from Ashes

Rising from Ashes

Directed T.C. Johnstone, Rising from Ashes is a feature length documentary about two worlds colliding when cycling legend Jock Boyer moves to Rwanda, Africa to help a group of struggling genocide survivors pursue their dream of creating a national cycling team. As they set out against impossible odds, both Jock and the team find new purpose as they rise from the ashes of their past.

Narrated by the Academy Award winning Forrest Whitaker, Rising from Ashes is a remarkable story of heroism, perseverance and triumph. The documentary was created with the purpose of telling a story of “redemption, hope, and second chances. It was not about the bike, however, the bicycle became a tool that changed a nation.”
