Hi all—Nina has a wideangle episode on tonight.
Here’s a Description of Tonight’s Episode of [wideangle]:
Ladies First — Rwandan women leading their country’s healing process
Thursday, July 22, at 9 PM*
PBS stations nationwide
Ten years after the bloody genocide that killed an estimated 800,000 people in just 100 days, Rwanda’s women are leading their country’s healing process and taking their society forward into a different future. They are playing a remarkable role in politics and are also emerging as prominent figures in the business sector.
In spring 2004 - as Rwanda commemorated the 10th anniversary of the genocide – [wideangle] traveled to this fractured nation to make a film that looks forward instead of back. Profiling women on the forefront of change, Ladies First reveals the challenges facing them and their country as Rwanda struggles to build a sustainable peace between the majority Hutus and minority Tutsis – a peace that has eluded the country for almost half a century.
