In 1994, the small central-African nation of Rwanda was the scene of a brutal genocide that saw nearly one million people slaughtered over the span of 100 days. In his moving documentary, THROUGH MY EYES, director Eric Kabera (KEEPERS OF MEMORY) chronicles the efforts of Rwandan teenagers--many of whom lost family members in the genocide--to help the country heal itself through artistic endeavors such as dance, music, poetry, and painting.
Description by Choices:
Through My Eyes follows the youth of Rwanda today, who use the arts to help move the country forward ten years after the genocide. By expressing themselves through dance, poetry, music and painting, the teens, many of whom lost parents and family members during the conflict, are able to deal with the emotional and physical trauma they endured.
