- A quartet of powerful, hard-hitting short films that lay bare the disturbing reality of everyday life in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Ladies in waiting: In a run-down maternity hospital, a ward of women who recently had babies wait to be allowed to leave. The problem? They cannot pay their hospital fees. A long-suffering manager must negotiate collateral with them so that they will return and pay in full.
Symphony Kinshasa: A hard-hitting tour through Congo's capital city which uncovers the consequences of graft, neglect and poverty in Kinshasa's imploding infrastructure.
Zero tolerance: Rape as a weapon of war has had much press, most notably in the recent Congo wars. Less discussed is the legacy it has left behind; a desensitized acceptance of the abuse of women at the hands of criminals, opportunists and most worryingly, ordinary men. This film follows the arrest of a group of youths who attack a woman.
After the mine: Kipushi is a mining town, one of thousands keeping Congo's elite in extreme wealth. But for those who live in the shadow of its toxic fallout, it is a very different life, one where tainted water and contaminated soil are realities. This film tells the very personal stories of those trapped in such a deadly environment.
