A Subsidiary of Provocate.org

Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Nov. 8: Hotel Rwanda: An Evening with Paul Rusesabagina


Discussion with the protagonist of the film Hotel Rwanda

When: Tuesday 8 November, 7:00-9:00 PM

Where: St. Luke's United Methodist Church, Sanctuary, 100 W. 86th St. Indianapolis

For two months Paul Rusesabagina held insanity at bay as he watched his country fall into the grips of genocide in 1994. A manager of a luxury hotel in Rwanda, he sheltered over 1,200 people, including his wife and children, as extremists massacred more than 800,000 people in just 100 days. His wrenching story is chronicled in the critically acclaimed film, Hotel Rwanda. Mr. Rusesabagina will tell his emotionally stirring story first hand - addressing what it means to move or stay—in one’s community, one’s family, and one's culture. Admission fee $5.

Presented by St. Luke's United Methodist Church and YMCA of Greater Indianapolis. Questions? Call 713-8541 or e-mail dhurles@indymca.org.
