UC Davis Human Rights Film Festival – “This is Congo”

November 2 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Time: 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Location: Manetti Shrem Museum at UC Davis

Please RSVP here.

A whistleblower, a patriotic military commander, a mineral dealer, and a displaced tailor share a glimpse of life amid Africa’s longest continuing conflict. Over the last two decades, the Democratic Republic of Congo has seen more than 5 million conflict-related deaths, multiple changes of government, and the wholesale impoverishment of its people. This is Congo provides an immersive and unfiltered look at this lush, mineral-rich country, from the rise of Rwandan and Ugandan-backed M23 rebels in the North Kivu region of Congo in 2012 to the present day via four profoundly resilient characters.

The selected films bear powerful and moving witness to human rights issues both locally and globally and will inspire our community with the knowledge and commitments that can make a difference. Audiences will have a chance to discuss the films in Q&A sessions with the filmmaker and/or UC faculty after the films.

This event is sponsored by UC Davis Humanities Institute, Human Rights Studies, in partnership with Human Rights Watch.
