A film by Daniel McCabe, celebrated war photographer.

Language: English, French, Swahili and Lingala with English subtitles.

THIS IS CONGO provides an immersive and unfiltered look into Africa’s longest continuing conflict and those who are surviving within it.

By following four compelling characters — a whistleblower, a patriotic military commander, a mineral dealer and a displaced tailor — the film offers viewers a truly Congolese perspective on the problems that plague this lushly beautiful nation. Colonel ‘Kasongo’, Mamadou Ndala, Mama Romance and Hakiza Nyantaba exemplify the unique resilience of a people who have lived and died through the generations due to the cycle of brutality generated by this conflict.

Though their paths never physically cross, the ongoing conflict reverberates across all of their lives.

Screening at Maysles Cinema.

When: Friday, June 29, 2018 2:00 PM.
