A New Life With Drums, Ice Cream and Conviction
Movies: ‘Sweet Dreams’
This documentary, “Sweet Dreams,” is about Ingoma Nshya, a women’s drumming troupe formed in Rwanda as a response to the 1994 genocide that killed as many as a million people. The film centers around Kiki Katese, founder of the drumming group, who explains matter-of-factly that, while traditionally only men were drummers, a trip to the National Museum revealed no particular reason for this. Katese says one person at the museum suggested it was because the drums are heavy.
“Well, let’s see how heavy they are,” she laughs.
