RWANDA: Sweet Dreams

 

How does a country distance itself up from the horrors of the past? In post-genocide Rwanda, this has proven to be a tall task. Yet, great strides have been made in the country's economic recovery since the '94 genocide. Pioneering Rwandan theater director Kiki Katese believes though that, "people are not like roads and buildings." 'Sweet Dreams' shows us the truth in her sentiment by following the story of Rwanda's first women-only drumming troupe as they empowerer themselves through a new and foreign venture - the creation of the country's first ever Ice Cream shop.
