Directors and sister and brother Lisa and Rob Fruchtman filmed and and directed the inspiring film Sweet Dreams . . which follows a remarkable group of Rwandan women as they emerge from the devastation of the 1994 genocide where almost a million minority Tutsis were killed by Hutus in one hundred days, many by those they knew as friends and neighbors. Kiki Katese, Rwandan playwright founded the first women's drumming troupe in Rwanda, breaking the taboo against women drumming, bringing together women from both sides of the conflict, and from there opening Rwanda's first ice cream store..to create a future of hope and possibility for themselves. Both the drumming and ice cream projects embody the idea that Rwandans need not only the means to survive, but also the means to live--ways to reconnect with joy, hope and previously unimagined possibilities--coming back to life after the horrific genocide they have endured. .
A beautiful. joyful film set in the lovely countryside of Rwanda-with powerful drumming by the womens drum troupe. The film has already generated attention for these remarkable Rwandan women. They received the prestigious 2012 Common Ground Award (past recipients include Desmond Tutu, Ellen Sirleaf Johnson, Jimmy Carter) Sweet Dreams has screened at the United Nations and in film festivals around the world.
