Mukomeze organises Rwandan movie night

Mukomeze organises Rwandan movie night

Come and experience a Rwandan evening, with Rwandan coffee and three short films that show the resilience and strength of Rwandan women who survived the genocide against the Tutsis in 1994. The evening, which is free of charge, is organised by the Mukomeze foundation to launch their newest film.

12 December 2018
19:15-20:45
Cacaofabriek Helmond, Cacaokade 1 in Helmond
Tickets are free, but please register online (Dutch)

The first film is ‘Intended consequences’ (15min). It tells the story of several women who endured sexual violence during the Rwandan genocide and who, as a consequence, got pregnant.

The second film ‘Mama Rwanda’ (35min) shows two women who combine mothership with entrepreneurship to face up to poverty.

The third and last film is ‘Mukomeze: Empower her’ (7min), filmed and directed by Robert van den Broek and his son zoon Simon.

In Summer 2018, both Robert and Simon went with the board of Mukomeze to Rwanda to film the work of Mukomeze. The film shows what Mukomeze, 10 years after its founding, is about and lets us witness the resilience of the women who survived sexual violence.

This evening is free of charge. We do ask you to register via this link (Dutch)
