EN ROUTE POUR LE MILLIARD (DOWNSTREAM TO KINSHASA)
FILMFORUM IM MUSEUM LUDWIG
Dieudo Hamadi’s film transports us back to the year 2000, to his hometown of Kisangani. After the fall of Mobutu, this megacity in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo became a pawn in the interests of Rwanda, Uganda and the Congolese central government. Open war broke out in July 2000, causing heavy civilian casualties. The reparations that were promised never materialised. So, in 2019, a group of people affected by the conflict joined forces and travelled to the capital Kinshasa to demand their rights. They were accompanied by a music theatre group, whose electrifying performances drew people’s attention on the journey down the Congo River.
