Filmed over the course of three years, Icyizere: Hope is a documentary about a reconciliation workshop in Rwanda that brings together 10 survivors and 10 perpetrators of the 1994 genocide, with encouraging results. Through addressing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and conducting a series of group exercises that help to build trust, the workshop brings participants to a place where they realize that the most effective way to overcome their trauma is by making an effort to forgive each other and work toward rebuilding trust within their communities. It is a film about the power of, and need for, forgiveness. (Digital presentation.)

Filmmaker Patrick Mureithi is scheduled to be present.
