After the horrific genocides in Rwanda’s recent history, its miraculous recovery has set an example for reconciliation, hope and constructive change for the rest of Africa. A new generation is ready to embrace growth and unity as they go to play in the Under-17 World Cup in Mexico. More than half of these players were orphaned by war. They are the first Rwandans to reach this level in international football despite their setbacks. Rwanda-17 Healing a Nation is an extraordinary film about Rwanda's progress since the 1994 genocide, and has received much recognition and critical acclaim.
