Biography

Patrick Mureithi is a documentary filmmaker, musician and public speaker. He has produced, filmed and edited "ICYIZERE:hope," a feature-length documentary about a gathering of 10 survivors and 10 perpetrators of the 1994 Rwandan genocide, as they learn about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and go through a series of group exercises that are designed to build trust. His most recent documentary, "Kenya: Until Hope is Found," was inspired by his experience in Rwanda. It is a film about forgiveness and reconciliation after the 2007/8 Post-Election Violence that left more than 1,200 dead and 500,000 displaced from their homes. Before he passed away, film critic Roger Ebert called "Kenya: Until Hope is Found" "an urgent documentary by a filmmaker I admire." 

After more than a decade-long hiatus due to an arm injury, Patrick has reentered the music world with his 10-song debut album, This I Believe. It is a melange of Delta blues, folk, reggae, and hip-hop, with songs that range from hopeful to forlorn to whimsical, all deeply spiritual. Ten songs, written over the past decade, feature Patrick playing acoustic guitar, slide guitar and ukulele."
