Synopsis

"The Democratic Republic of Congo is home to one of the world's richest seams of copper, coltan and other minerals increasingly sought after by Western electronics consumers. Rather than improving life for the world's poorest people, however, billions of dollars have been redirected to British companies' tax havens and to local militia. Fuelling a war that has cost 5 million lives and counting since 1996, it may one day come to be known as the worst human atrocity in modern history. Can we stop it?" EIFF 2015
Edinburgh International Film Festival 2015 - World premiere
