In Rwanda, they have long been rejected. The children born from rape during the 1994 genocide.
They are no less than twenty thousand. Today, in their twenties, they learn to live with this dreadful heritage. Spicee met with Dyvine, Hillary, Arthur, Emmerance… They just became adults and still have questions regarding their origin. Only now, do they have the strength to talk about their stories, and this painful feeling of illegitimacy they face in the Rwandan society. These children called “Painful memories”, are nonetheless the symbol of a great promise: the reconciliation between Hutus and Tutsis. What if they were the future of Rwanda?
