2012 Sweet Dreams

Sweet Dreams / Rob Fruchtman, Lisa Fruchtman

The story of the women of Ingoma Nshya, the first women’s drumming troupe in Rwanda, and their efforts to create the country’s first locally owned ice cream shop, Inzozi Nziza (Sweet Dreams). In 1994, Rwandans suffered one of the worst genocides in history. Ten years later, Kiki Katese, a pioneering theater director, founded Ingoma Nshya, offering healing for women from both sides of the conflict. All are survivors of the genocide. Some lost their families; others are wives or children of perpetrators. In 2008, Kiki met Jennie and Alexis, the owners of Brooklyn’s Blue Marble Ice Cream Shop and invited them to help Ingoma Nshya open the country’s first local ice cream shop. Ice cream, she argued, was both a new way to create desperately needed jobs and a source and symbol of joy in a country emerging from tragedy. Sweet Dreams follows this remarkable group of Rwandan women as they create their own unique path to a future of peace and possibility.
