Angolie. One of the women who sells the sambaza (local fish) at the market. These small sardines are caught at night by the fishermen, delivered to the market, weighed and priced per kilo and then sold by these women to the consumer // #rwanda
The past few days has been incredible in Rwanda. A lot of big emotions and phenomenal experiences with an amazing group of people. Today has been probably the most touching day of the trip as we visited in the memorial of 1994 Genocide against of Tutsis in Rwanda and had a tribute for all those over 1 million victims how lost their lives.

Xavier. This dude was our translator / connection guy while we were in Gisenyi filming the fishermen. He had some incredible contacts with the Rwandan Development Bureau (RDB) and local police to help get us get permits to film and fly drones on the lake. He was one of many that lost everything during the Rwandan genocide 24 years ago. Everything. But, he let us in, showed us his country, showed us his neighborhood, showed us his friends. He sees hope and forgiveness through eyes that I can’t recognize; through a perspective, that no matter how hard I try, I don’t understand. I value the time and friendship we formed with Xavier so closely.
