Sweet Dreams, Rwandan Film with Director Rob Fruchtman-- NYS Writers Institute Classic Film Series
SWEET DREAMS follows the remarkable story of a group of Rwandan women who, in the aftermath of the 1994 genocide, form the country’s first all-female drumming troupe and open the country’s first ice cream parlor. Sibling producer-directors Lisa and Rob Fruchtman have created a nuanced film that explores complex issues of reconciliation and nation-building.
