By following four compelling characters – a whistleblower, a patriotic military commander, a mineral dealer and a displaced tailor – THIS IS CONGO offers viewers a truly Congolese perspective on the problems that plague this lushly beautiful nation. The film portrays the world’s longest continuing conflict through the unfiltered lenses of those who survive within it. They exemplify the unique resilience of a people who have lived and died across generations due to the cycle of brutality generated by this conflict.
