The online fundraising campaign in February exceeded our goal of raising $60,000, and the film is now ready to be shared! We could not have done this without the support of our many friends and supporters. Thank you! Warm regards, Lily Yeh Founding Director Barefoot Artists, Inc. The Barefoot Artist in Rwanda In April, Glenn Holsten (film co-director) and Lily Yeh shared The Barefoot Artist film with genocide survivors and Twa villagers in the Rugerero sector, West Rwanda. The story of the Rwanda Healing Project is an important segment of the film and includes several sensitive and emotional stories from Lily's extensive interviews with the survivors and the Twa over the past few years. It was very important to share the film with them, to seek their feedback about the film, and more importantly, to ask for their blessings. There was so much fun in the sharing. People were very excited to see themselves and people they know in the film. At the beginning, some individuals were hesitant about sharing their stories. However, when they saw how sensitively the film was done, and how their stories were told, they gave their blessings in a most fervent manner. They said, "Go and tell the stories so our tragedies will be remembered. We are okay with the stories because we are not in the sad situations of 1994 anymore. We are looking at the future with hope and new possibilities." Asking to keep a copy of the film, Christian Dukuze, Executive Secretary of Rugerero, said, “I must have a copy for my people. This is our legacy. It helps us to remember.” The community gave us their blessings after reviewing the film.
