The Mercy Of The Jungle
Directed by Joël Karekezi
Sent to hunt down those who perpetrated genocide in their native Rwanda four years ago, Sergeant Xavier and young Private Faustin are accidentally left behind in the jungles of eastern Congo at the start of the Second Congo War, in 1998. Amidst intense armed conflict, they take refuge in the dense forest. A close bond develops between them as they fight to survive the jungle as well as their own past nightmares. (Note: some violent imagery.)
In French and Swahili with English subtitles.
All films are free and open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis.
