KINSHASA MAKAMBO


In January 2015, the President of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Joseph Kabila, sought a constitutional amendment that would allow him to be elected president for a third time. This film documents the resulting demonstrations and follows three protagonists of the resistance. Ben, who lives in exile in New York, decides to join the struggle in the Congo. Jean Marie, who has just been released from prison, continues his campaign for his country’s freedom and is persecuted by the secret service. Christian fights in the streets of Kinshasa, even after the death of former Prime Minister Etienne Tshisekedi, on whom the opposition had pinned their hopes.
