Twenty years after the genocide, the powerful documentary, Sweet Dreams captures the uplifting story of a group of Hutu and Tutsi women who form Rwanda's first all-women drumming troupe and open its first ice cream shop.
Sweet Dreams explores the aftermath of the 1994 genocide through women's empowerment and the entrepreneurial spirit of today's Rwanda. It depicts the remarkable story of Ingoma Nshya, an all-women's drumming troupe, as they bring together women from both sides of the conflict , to build a place of support, healing and reconciliation and introduce a brand new business, Rwanda's first ever ice cream shop.
Human Rights Watch has documented the genocide and continues to report on human rights abuses in Rwanda.
Join us after the film for a discussion moderated by LA Times critic Kenneth Turan with Director Lisa Fruchtman and Human Rights Watch Rwanda Research Lewis Mudge.
All guests are invited to attend a reception with the panelists following the screening and discussion.
