The Displaced: This is Congo

March 27, 2014---In the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, Hakiza Ndaba, a 58-year-old tailor, lives a life of displacement, continuously running with his family from a war that has surrounded them for decades. The feature-length documentary film This Is Congo follows him through two different displacement camps over the course of two years, witnessing the horrific conditions that victims of war confront on a daily basis. This is an excerpt from the film, currently in production. 

This Is Congo takes an unfiltered look at one of the world's longest ongoing wars. The film documents the most recent cycle of conflict with the Rwandan- and Ugandan-backed M23 rebels, who have threatened peace and stability in and around Goma for the past two years.
