'Rising Sons' and 'Out of the Ashes' Presented by LA Jewish Film Festival
RISING SONS/OUT OF THE ASHES
Directed by Erin Heidenreich
Produced by Susan Saltz
Program with Jewish World Watch and special guest Malka Schulweis!
How do you end a culture of rampant rape? Congolese couple Camille and Esther Ntoto decided that first you must offer men a new vision of themselves and of women. Their program, Sons of Congo, is shown in this intimate, revelatory documentary through the voices of participants. In eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, where the Ntotos work, roaming militias often use brutal rape as a weapon of war, and it is believed one of every three women and girls in the region have been raped. Educating men, one small group at a time, is helping disrupt and end this cycle of violence.
Q&A with Susan Saltz, Camille and Esther Ntoto, founders of Sons of Congo and Africa New Day, moderated by Susan Freudenheim, Executive Director of Jewish World Watch. Special appearance by Malkah Schulweis, JWW board member.
