Through My Eyes: A Film About Rwandan Youth.

Rwanda has suffered so much in the genocide of 1994. The world little knows of the depths of the pain and the heights at reconciliation and healing. W.C. Fields said, “If I can make them laugh, and through that laughter make this old world seem just a little brighter, then I am satisfied.” Laughter is truly the best medicine of all. Earlier in the week, Dr. Fields donated DVDs of W.C. Fields' films to the Kwetu Film Institute developing film Library for the students and Eric Kabera donated to the W.C. Fields' family his award winning documentaries on Rwanda.
