'Episode III: Enjoy Poverty' presented by Congo in Harlem 4 followed by discussion with Renzo Martens
Dir. Renzo Martens, 2009. 94 min.
In English, French, and Swahili with English subtitles

In Episode III: Enjoy Poverty, Dutch artist Renzo Martens asserts that the greatest natural resource in Congo -- a country that has received billions of dollars in foreign aid -- is poverty. Employing a provocative mix of satire, investigative journalism, and personal diary, Martens embarks on a visionary quest to awaken the Congolese people to the value of their poverty. Sometimes humorous, often troubling, always sharp Enjoy Poverty presents an incisive parable on western guilt, exploitation, and the international aid complex.

Screening followed by discussion with filmmaker Renzo Martens
