THE MAN WHO MENDS WOMEN (ADIFF CHICAGO OPENING NIGHT)
THE MAN WHO MENDS WOMEN
Friday, June 10, 2016 @ 8PM
A reception will take place before the screening.
A question-and-answer segment will be held after the screening with the son of Doctor Mukwege, Alan Mukwege.
Doctor Mukwege is internationally known as the man who mends thousands of women who have been sexually assaulted during the 20 years of conflicts in the East of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. However, his endless struggle to put an end to these atrocities and denounce the impunity enjoyed by the perpetrators is not welcome.
Threatened with death, Mukwege now lives cloistered in his hospital in Bukavu. But he is no longer alone in his struggle. The women to whom he has restored physical integrity and dignity, stand beside him, true activists for peace, hungry for justice.
