Commemorate Rwanda’s Genocide Victims By Watching ‘Mama Rwanda’
April 6, 2021
April 7th is recognized by the United Nations as the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of the 1994 Rwanda Genocide. The MPI-supported documentary Mama Rwanda honors the strength of the Rwandan people, telling the story of two mothers using entrepreneurship to transform post-genocide Rwanda into one of the top ten fastest growing economies in the world.
The film follows Drocella, a village wife, and Christine, a city widow, who have traded subsistence living for a life of business innovation—sparking enlightenment and controversy in their communities.
