The Bozeman Doc Series presents the Montana premiere of the critically acclaimed new documentary, This is Congo.
Over the last two decades, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, a mineral-rich Central African country, has seen more than five million conflict-related deaths, multiple regime changes and the wholesale impoverishment of its people. Yet, little is known in the West about the players or stakes involved.
This is Congo provides an immersive and unfiltered look into Africa’s longest continuing conflict and those who are surviving within it. By following four compelling characters — a whistleblower, a patriotic military commander, a mineral dealer and a displaced tailor — the film offers viewers a truly Congolese perspective on the problems that plague this lushly beautiful nation.
Featuring exceptional cinematography by photographer/filmmaker Daniel McCabe, the film world-premiered at the recent Venice Film Festival to widespread critical acclaim.
Doors open at 6:30pm, screening begins at 7:00pm.
