Made up of
women from both sides of the 1994 Rwandan genocide, Rwanda’s first and only all
women’s drum troupe, Ingoma Nshya, 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. SWEET DREAMS interweaves heart-wrenching
stories of tragedy with powerful examples of hope and resilience to present a
moving portrait of a country in transition.
There will be a Q&A with Co-Directors Lisa Fruchtman and Rob Fruchtman following the screening.
