Downstream to Kinshasa
Dieudo Hamadi
2020 - France/République démocratique du Congo - Couleur - 88'

1,734 km on the Congo River, an incredible journey to demand justice. Sola, Modogo, Mama Kashinde, Papa Sylvain, Bozi and President Lemalema are members of the Kisangani Six-Day War Victims Association. For two decades, they have been fighting for the recognition of this bloody conflict and demanding compensation for the damages suffered. Outraged by the indifference of the institutions towards them, they decide to head towards Kinshasa to voice their claims.
