City of Joy
Congo, 2016, 75 min.
In English, French, Swahili with English subtitles.
A tale of hope and restoration unfolds in CITY OF JOY, a film that follows the first class of students at a revolutionary leadership center in war-torn eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.
Devastated by 20 years of violence, the eastern part of The Democratic Republic of Congo is often referred to as "the worst place in the world to be a woman." This film brings a different story from the region. A film about the profound resilience of the human spirit, CITY OF JOY witnesses Congolese women's fierce will to reclaim hope, even when so much of what was meaningful to them has been stripped away.
