Award winning documentary filmmakers Lisa Fruchtman and Rob Fruchtman have a new documentary being released, Sweet Dreams. The film has already received many critical accolades including being a top 10 audience winner at IDFA.
It follows Rwanda's first all female drumming troupe who work to open the country's first ice cream parlor. Here's the official synopsis.
Ingoma Nshya is Rwanda's first and only all women's drumming troupe. Made up of women from both sides of the 1994 Rwandan genocide, the troupe offers a place of support, healing and reconciliation. When the group decides to partner with two young American entrepreneurs, Jennie Dundas and Alexis Miesen of Brooklyn's Blue Marble Ice Cream, to open Rwanda's first ever ice cream shop, these remarkable Rwandan women embark on a journey of independence, peace and possibility. Sweet Dreams interweaves intimate, heart-wrenching stories with joyous and powerful music to present a moving portrait of a country in transition.
Sweet Dreams will open in New York on November 1st and then Los Angeles on November 29. Check out the trailer below.
