About:
An inside look at the complex forces behind the Democratic Republic of Congo’s ongoing conflicts.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Filmmaker Daniel McCabe examines multiple sides of the fractious war in the Democratic Republic of Congo – including soldiers, rebels, and a diamond merchant known as Mama Romance – who allow us to make human connections in a chaotic conflict. In the process, his stunningly shot film demonstrates the connections between instability and violence in the region and the market in illegally mined natural resources.
