THIS IS CONGO

THIS IS CONGO

Showtimes

NYC PREMIERE Filmmaker Daniel McCabe examines multiple sides of the fractious war in the Democratic Republic of Congo. We meet soldiers, rebels and a diamond merchant known as Mama Romance who allow us to make human connections in a chaotic conflict. This is Congo premiered at the Venice Film Festival where Variety wrote, ‘The film soars when it plays up to McCabe’s grounding as a photographer, exploring the rapturous natural landscape, bustling incidental street life and rattling war-zone chaos of the Congo with wholly cinematic vigor.’
