Please join us this coming Wednesday evening for a special night of inspiring film and live music with some delicious ice cream and coffee imported from the Mother Land – all for just $13 a ticket which you can buy online via the “Get Tickets” button below.
A decade after the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, Kiki Katese, a pioneering theatre director, founded Ingoma Nshya, the country’s first female drumming troupe, offering healing for women from both sides of the conflict. When Kiki met the owners of Brooklyn’s Blue Marble Ice Cream, she invited them to help Ingoma Nshya open Rwanda’s first local ice cream shop. Sweet Dreams follows this remarkable group of Rwandan women as they create their own unique path to a future of peace and possibility.
This very special evening will include:
- Selected scenes from the film Sweet Dreams
- Live musical performance by three members of the all-female drumming troupe Ingoma Nshya accompanied by NYC-based all-female drummers Akalande
- Conversation with award winning directors/producers Lisa and Rob Fruchtman
- Blue Marble Ice Cream and Grace Hightower & Coffees of Rwanda
Special thanks to 651 Arts, Blue Marble Ice Cream, Grace Hightower De Niro/Strategic Coffee Concepts, and Liro Films.
