Sweet Dreams

After the devastating Rwandan genocide of 1994, it was the people, not just the country, that needed to be rebuilt. Theatre director Kiki Katese started Rwanda’s first women's drumming troupe, open to women from both sides of the conflict. Pounding out rhythms of power and joy the 60-strong group began healing the wounds of the past, but still struggled to provide for their families. The answer? To found Rwanda’s first and only ice-cream shop. Sweet Dreams is about a remarkable group of women who dare to dream of new possibilities for themselves and their country.
