This is Congo: One of the world’s longest running conflicts

The Democratic Republic of the Congo is home to Africa’s longest continuing conflict.

In this film, we followed a whistleblower and a patriotic military commander who provided a visceral, yet intimate, insight into a nation caught between foreign-backed rebels and the government of then-president Joseph Kabila, who ruled until 2019.

As the conflict resonates with both men’s lives, the film reveals the insidious legacy of colonialism, resource exploitation and wars that have created a continuing cycle of violence.
