Sweet Dreams
A decade after the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, Kiki Katese, a pioneering theatre director, founded Ingoma Nshya, the country's first female drumming troupe, offering healing for women from both sides of the conflict. When Kiki met the owners of Brooklyn's Blue Marble Ice Cream, she invited them to help Ingoma Nshya open Rwanda's first local ice cream shop. Sweet Dreams follows this remarkable group of Rwandan women as they create their own unique path to a future of peace and possibility.

Oscar and Emmy Award winning sibling filmmakers Lisa and Rob Fruchtman co-produced and directed this upbeat documentary to tell these Rwandan women's inspiring story.

This very special event will include:

  • *Selected scenes from the film Sweet Dreams
  • *Live musical performance by three members of the drumming troupe Ingoma Nshya
  • *Conversation with award winning directors/producers Lisa and Rob Fruchtman
