Congo in Four Acts

directed by Dieudo Hamadi, Divita Wa Lusala, Patrick Ken Kalala and Kiripi Katembo Siku, South Africa/Democratic Republic of the Congo 2010, 69' (English friendly)

  • This film by three Congolese artists (in their cinematic debut) consists of four novellas. The first part, Women Who Wait, is a tragicomedy on the functioning of the maternal ward in Kinshasa. The next novella, Kinshasa Symphony, shows the entire range of dangers that await the residents of garbage-filled Kinshasa slums. Zero Tolerance takes on the systemic sexual violence against women. The final novella shows what is left of a mine that once gave the Congo its power: women and children lethargically crushing rocks among the lunar landscape filled with countless mounds. Congo in Four Acts is the best evidence that local problems are best seen up close.
