Rare access inside one of the World’s Longest Running Conflicts | Witness Documentary

Democratic Republic of the Congo

The Democratic Republic of the Congo is home to Africa’s longest continuing conflict.
 
In this film, we followed a whistleblower and a patriotic military commander who provided a visceral, yet intimate, insight into a nation caught between foreign-backed rebels and the government of then-president Joseph Kabila, who ruled until 2019.
 
As the conflict resonates with both men’s lives, the film reveals the insidious legacy of colonialism, resource exploitation and wars that have created a continuing cycle of violence.
