Video Monday:ICYIZERE:hope

We know, we know. It’s Monday, not Video Friday. But this trailer is too good not to share!

Award winning documentary filmmaker Patrick Mureithi, a Kenyan native, traveled to Rwanda to film a gathering of 10 survivors and 10 perpetrators of the 1994 genocide.

ICYIZERE:hope is a documentary about the experiences of the participants, as they are taught about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and go through a series of group exercises to help build trust. The film also explores how the media was used to incite fear, hatred and, ultimately, genocide, as it is the filmmaker’s belief that just as media can and has been used to divide and destroy, so can it be used to unite and to heal.
