Synopsis

Hundreds of young revolutionaries take to the streets of Kinshasa when Joseph Kabila, President of the Democratic Republic of Congo, refuses to relinquish power at the end of his second term. Protests are met with violence, but the battle for free elections and democracy cannot be repressed.

Our take

Acclaimed director Dieudo Hamadi captures issues felt by resistance movements across the world in this attentive and urgent portrait of young Congolese protestors fighting for democracy. By sidestepping conventional narrative, Hamadi’s perceptive camera focuses on the energy of collective action.
