Rwanda: Gorilla Young Filmmakers

As Rwanda tries to come to terms with horrors of 1994 genocide, the country has attracted a lot of global media attention. It’s sad a huge chunk of Rwandan stories online today, are told by foreigners. The stories of Twa, the minority Rwandan community remains untold. Predominantly living in the forests, they know very little about the new media. We seek to reach and train them via workshops in the art of blogging, photography and video making


  • Look like a great project. As a Rwandan i have not read stories about Twa community as they are told by themselves. What is dotting the international media are stories told by foreigners. Go for it man all the best!

  • This project is relevant to promote batwa ethnic community as it will help their talents to be highlighted. This is especially in dance, pottery and playing traditional instruments. Good luck Joe!

  • The Twa community have been relegated to the back seat in Rwanda’s opportunities. Such training will put them at par with the other two communities.. Can’t wait to read their stories…
