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.

The film documents how through organizations and group activities,these creative talents not only honor those that perished but also confront new problems affecting the country such as poverty and AIDS. By focusing on what they accomplish by working together in creative endeavors,the youth of Rwanda prove that art can not benefit those around them but ensure future generations have a brighter future. From acclaimed director Eric Kabera (Keepers of Memory).

Eric Kabera, founder of the Kwetu Film Institute and Hillywood with the Film Festival in Rwanda, has an impressive filmography that includes Africa United, an award-winning feature film about three youngsters from Rwanda who embark on an epic journey to the World Cup; Keepers of Memory, a documentary commemorating the 10th anniversary of the genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda; Through my Eyes, a documentary film about Rwandan youth reflecting on their past, present and future perspectives; and 100 Days, a riveting film recounting the legacy of the genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda .

Kabera has been recognized by the Director’s Guild of America, and is the 2012 recipient of the Pan African Film Festival’s prestigious African Creative Visionary Award.
