Congo in Four Acts is a 2010 documentary film.
Initiated as an educational project to help young filmmakers develop their craft, Congo in Four Acts is a quartet of short films. Ladies in Waiting chronicles the bureaucratic dysfunctions of a maternity ward from which women cannot leave unless they pay their fees. Symphony Kinshasa takes the viewer on a tour through Congo’s capital city where malaria is rife, electricity cables lie in the street and garbage is everywhere. Zero Tolerance deals with rape as a weapon of war in Eastern RDC and the attempts by authorities to re-establish the national moral code. After the Mine depicts life in Kipushi, a mining town where the soil is contaminated.
