Democratic Republic of the Congo/France/Switzerland/Germany/Norway, 2018, 75 min
Christian, Ben and Jean-Marie are fighting for political change of power and free elections in their country, the Democratic Republic of the Congo. But the incumbent President refuses to relinquish power. How can the course of events be changed? Must they join forces with the historical opposition leader and his powerful party? Is dialogue still possible or must they resign themselves to a popular uprising and the risk of a blood bath? « Kinshasa Makambo » immerses us in the combat these three activists are engaged in, a combat that neither bullets, nor prison, nor exile seem able to stop.
