Downstream to Kinshasa

Downstream to Kinshasa

90' 2020
dir.: Dieudo Hamadi

The odyssey of war crime victims in the Democratic Republic of Congo. A group of people with disabilities tries to force corrupt politicians in the capital to take action. 

Dieudo Hamadi's camera accompanies a group of people with disabilities on their journey to the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo to receive pensions from authorities. The director observes his characters during a multi-day voyage and then on the streets of Kinshasa. What form must the protest take to pierce the veil of silence?
