The Chebeya Affair: A State Crime? presented by Congo in Harlem 4
Dir. Thierry Michel, 2012. 94 min.
In English, French, and Lingala with English subtitles
On June 2, 2010, Congolese human rights activist Floribert Chebeya was called to meet with Congo's national chief of police. Later that day, he was found dead in the backseat of his car. Before Chebeya's death, the police had been threatening him for his strong denouncement of the current regime in Kinshasa -- and now several high-level police officials are suspects in his murder. The Chebeya Affair follows their trial, uncovering a trail of lies, denials, forgeries, disappearing evidence. Will the judicial authority be capable of exercising impartial justice?
