A growing group of young adults in the Democratic Republic of Congo are resisting the western one-sided reporting of their country: stereotypical images of war, violence, and poverty. Three young Congolese photographers and filmmakers want to capture their own images of their country to replace those images that don’t reflect the reality in which they live. At the same time, they question whether western filmmakers are capable of capturing any of this complex, damaged, and beautiful country’s truth at all.
