Sweet Dreams

Last week, I saw the documentary “Sweet Dreams.” The film follows Rwanda’s first and only all women’s drummers troupe:

“Made up of women from both sides of the 1994 Rwandan genocide, the troupe offers healing and reconciliation.”

At first I was hesitant to see the film, as I thought it was going to be one of those white savior type of films (the directors are white).  But the film manages to keep the women’s voices front and center. However, I did feel like something was missing. I’m not sure what.  Their stories of war and healing are touching, though. I definitely recommend folks check it out…
