This is Congo

This is Congo provides an immersive and unfiltered look into the world's longest continuing conflict and those who are surviving within it. By following four compelling people -- 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, Mama Romance and Hakiza 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.
