Online Event

Downstream to Kinshasa is a compelling documentary that follows a group of war survivors from Kisangani. Civilians maimed in the Six-Day War, a violent conflict between Ugandan and Rwandan armed forces that came to a head in their city, twenty years on they demand justice and the reparations they were promised. Taking matters in their own hands, they journey down the Congo River to the capital of Kinshasa, determined to make their voices heard. A powerful portrait of human strength and resilience and a call to remember those who have suffered at the hands of war. Directed by Dieudo Hamadi (Lingala and Swahili with subtitles).
Part of Cinema Versa, LIFF 2020's selection dedicated to documentary, non-fiction and music film.
