Downstream to Kinshasa
In June 2000, a bloody war raged in the streets of the city of Kisangani, leaving around 1,000 dead, and at least 3,000 wounded.
Kisangani’s civilian victims were promised compensation, but 18 years have passed and they’ve still received nothing. Weary of all the false promises, some of them decide to go to the capital Kinshasa to voice their demands. They travel by boat along the Congo River, determined to get justice.
Downstream to Kinshasa is more than a demand for compensation: the spirit with which the victims claim their place in society makes this a portrait of human dignity.
