On this week’s episode of Acting Up, Cortney Wills sits down with Nicole Avant and Alanna Brown to discuss their  riveting film ‘Trees of Peace’. Based on a true story, the heart-wrenching project is centered on four women who forge an unbreakable bond while in hiding during the genocide in Rwanda. The ladies discuss the story’s message of determination and resilience as well as what it took to bring the idea to fruition after more than eight years. They’ll also examine the ways Nicole Avant was able to use her expertise and influence to help this first time filmmaker full of raw talent take it across the finish line.
