Glasgow Film Festival
This Is Congo

Mon 26 February 2018

New York based photographer Daniel McCabe turns documentary filmmaker with this eye-opening insight into decades of violent conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The focus is on the rebel March 23 Movement and their opposition to President Joseph Kabila’s government. Complex issues are given a human perspective through interviews with four key individuals: National Army Colonel Kasongo, charismatic military leader Colonel Mamadou, tailor Hakiza Nyantabe, and Bibiane, aka Mama Romance, a dealer in illegal gem stones. Raw, compelling front-line reporting.

Also screening Sun 25 Feb, 6.15pm
