"Sweet Dreams", by Rob Fruchtman

Screened on 11 March 2013

Runtime: 90'

Sweet Dreams bannerIngoma Nshya is Rwanda’s first and only all women’s drumming troupe. Made up of women from both sides of the 1994 Rwandan genocide, the troupe offers a place of support, healing and reconciliation. When the group decides to partner with two young American entrepreneurs to open Rwanda’s first ever ice cream shop, these remarkable women embark on a journey of independence, peace and possibility.
