Switzerland | 2017 | 100 minutes | directed by Milo Rau
Various Languages with English Subtitles

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 globalisation’s crucial econimic distribution battles because the
country has major deposits of many high-tech raw materials. Milo Rau 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 wars in human history.
