Page Hall, 135 Western Avenue, Downtown Campus

A documentary that 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, with the help of the Brooklyn-based Blue Marble Ice Cream Company. Sibling producer-directors Lisa and Rob Fruchtman have created a nuanced film that explores complex issues of human rights, reconciliation, and nation-building.

Jennifer Dundas, notable film and stage actress, and socially conscious ice cream entrepreneur, will offer commentary and answer questions following the screening of the documentary.
