In the aftermath of the ruinous 1994 civil war and genocide in the African nation of Rwanda, a theater director named Kiki Katese persuaded a group of women still healing from the traumatic events to form Rwanda’s first and only all-female traditional drumming troupe. American documentary-makers Lisa and Rob Fruchtman were there to watch it happen, and their account of the Ingoma Nshya troupe’s rise to prominence is as hopeful and soul-nourishing as any “inspirational” movie you could ever see. The big beat of Africa is overwhelming and the women’s stories are heartbreaking. And when they start their own ice cream shop (Rwanda’s first) as a way to share their newfound joy, the “feel-good-o-meter” maxes out. Pay close attention to the faces (84 min.).
Director: Lisa Fruchtman and Rob Fruchtman
