On and off the pitch, the blindness of Rwandan sports reporter Leonidas doesn’t define or prevent him from doing the work he loves.
Leonidas Ndayisaba is a sports journalist based in Kigali, Rwanda. He covers matches, analyzes team management, discusses player transfers and comments on action on and off the pitch.
He sat in the football stadium, soaking up the atmosphere while his colleagues described the play to him – because Leonidas was almost completely blind.
He has had very little eyesight since he was a child and can only see large shapes. But his blindness did not define or prevent him from his passion for sports.
Samuel Ishimwe is a filmmaker in Rwanda. His graduation short film won the Silver Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival and other awards including the Alexa Award at the Palm Spring International Short Festival.
