ASIA PREMIERE


Milo Rau

Germany, Switzerland

2017 | 1:40:00

The war in Congo has caused more than six million deaths over the last twenty years. The population is suffering, but the offenders stay with impunity. Many people see this conflict as one of globalization’s crucial economic distribution battles because the country has major deposits of many high-tech raw materials. Milo Rau, one of Europe’s most acclaimed theatre directors, succeeds in gathering victims, perpetrators, observes, and analysts of the conflict for a unique civil tribunal in eastern Congo. The documentary film brings these spectacular court trials to life on the big screen and creates an unvarnished portrait of the largest and bloodiest economic war in human history.

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

June 2 - 10, 2018

An international jury overview the sections of short films coming from all over the world. We prefer documentaries which succeed in representing the complexity of reality and discover in a new way its sensible and perturbing aspects on the same time accentuating the ambivalent and enigmatic status of reality in avoiding sterotypes and simplifing conclusions.
