Please join us for the London Premiere of THIS IS CONGO at our Film Festival Benefit Gala on Wednesday 7 March 2018 at the Royal Institute of British Architects as we celebrate the power of film to raise awareness of human rights issues and the power of personal stories to galvanise action around the world.
In THIS IS CONGO, a whiste-blower, a patriotic military commander, a mineral dealer and a displaced tailor offer their perspectives on the problems that plague the Democratic Republic of Congo today. THIS IS CONGO provides a beautifully immersive and unfiltered look into the lives of four characters who exemplify a unique resilience while living through Africa’s longest continuing conflict.
The Film Festival Benefit will mark the start of the 2018 Human Rights Watch London Film Festival which runs from 7-16 March in several venues throughout London.
Human Rights Watch is one of the world’s leading independent organisations dedicated to defending and protecting human rights. Through our Film Festival we bear witness to human rights violations and create a forum for courageous individuals on both sides of the lens to empower audiences with the knowledge that personal commitment can make a difference.
