Rwanda: She Is Taking Rwandan Cinema Beyond Our Borders

The founder of 'A Wize Films' production company, Annette Uwizeye, is one of the few women working in Rwanda's nascent film industry. The South Africa-educated 31-year-old discovered her passion for the arts while pursuing a degree in Auditing and Accounting at the University of South Africa.

In an interview with Women Today, the eloquent and open-minded Annette narrates how she switched from a career that many consider 'safe', to embrace her true passion.
