DAS KONGO TRIBUNAL by Milo Rau

GERMANY / SWITZERLAND Documentary, 100 min., 2017 ORIGINAL LANGUAGES: German, French, English, Swahili, Congolese PRODUCTION: Fruitmarket, Cologne /  Langfilm, Freienstein / IIPM Berlin – Zurich /  SRF / SRG SSR / ZDF in collaboration with ARTE WORLD SALES: Magnetfilm GmbH, Berlin www.magnetfilm.de FESTIVALS (SELECTION): Locarno Festival 2017 DOK Leipzig 2017 IFF Rotterdam 2018 CPH:DOX 2018

In the form of a tribunal with an international cast and filmed on-location in Eastern Congo and in Berlin, the film examines the causes and backgrounds for the war now ongoing for almost 20 years in the Great Lakes region. The result is a humanly harrowing, profound analytic tableau of the neo-colonial world order.
