« Back to All Events

Event Details

September 22, 2016 | 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm | Pollak Theatre

Free Event

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.

RUN TIME: 1 hour 30 minutes

On Screen/In Person is a program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation made possible through the generous support of the National Endowment for the Arts. For more information on theĀ Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation visitĀ
