Kinshasa Makambo

synopsis

In January 2015, Joseph Kabila, the president of the Democratic Republic of Congo, tried to pass an amendment to the constitution which would have allowed him to run for a third presidential mandate. The film follows the desperate efforts of the activists rallying to prevent such a constitutional infringement in a country where the militarised powers-that-be don’t fight back with tear gas, but with war ammunition. (Raluca Durbacă)
