CONGO IN HARLEM 2
L'Afrique En Morceaux / "The Tragedy of the Great Lakes"
Dir. Jihan El-Tahri, 2001, 100min.
A chronicle of DR Congo from 1994-2000, filmed at the height of the Second Congo War. With astonishing access to key political and military players in the conflict -- including Kabila, Kagame, Musaveni, and Kabarebe -- El-Tahri has created an essential historical document that remains as relevant today as it was nearly a decade ago. Africa in Pieces served as an important reference in the recently leaked UN mapping report, and it's screening at Congo in Harlem will be the film's first public showing in the US.
AFTER THE SCREENING:
Discussion with director Jihan El-Tahri, Jason Stearns (Congo researcher/analyst, former UN investigator) and Luc Cote (Lead investigator/writer of the UN mapping report), moderated by Samar Al-Bulushi (Congo researcher) & reception.
This evening is co-presented by The New York African Film Festival.
