There will be a post-screening Q&A with director Dearbhla Glynn
Over 6 million people have been killed in the ongoing war in the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. The country has experienced a phenomenally high level of rape during this crisis. Award-winning filmmaker Dearbhla Glynn explores the impact of war on a community and presents an uncompromising examination of the sexual violence perpetrated with impunity against women and girls within this war-torn territory. The film explores the experience of both victims and perpetrators– foot soldiers, warlords and high-ranking commandants. What emerges is an arresting and brutal account of how war leaves few victors – least of all women – whose value is often rendered worthless.
This event is screening as part of IFI Documentary Festival 2015 (September 23 – 27)
