“Sweet Dreams, the newly released documentary film about their story, was shown at the United Nations to an audience of 400 people, and was featured in Maryland’s Silver Docs Film Festival. The film follows the remarkable story of these women as they emerge from the devastation of the genocide to create a new future for themselves as Rwanda’s first female drumming troupe, and as they open and run Rwanda’s first and only ice cream shop. The women staff the store and share equally in the business.”
