Sweet Dreams follows a remarkable group of Rwandan women as they emerge from the devastation of the genocide to create a new future for themselves. “Because of our history, people know how to fight against, but not for,” Kiki says. “We want to change that equation.” Kiki decided to start Ingoma Nshya, Rwanda’s first and only women’s drumming troupe, open to women from both sides of the conflict. There was only one requirement: to leave the categories of the past at the gate. This uplifting film follows the women as they start a business named Inzozi Nziza (which means Sweet Dreams).
