#CongoleseLivesMatter

MOST RECENT

I just recently returned from a work trip to Mbulungu, Kasaï-Central where we went to profile the plight of people who have returned to their villages after the months-long Kasaï regional conflict. The people pictured here did not have much before having to flee their homes, but they returned to less than nothing— many of their homes and fields were pillaged and burned to ground by militants. My organization has been helping these returnees with seeds and tools in addition to supporting them in rebuilding their homes so they can begin a dignified existence again. Unfortunately, in many areas of the region @nrc_norway is the only humanitarian organization present. People go months without seeing any type of humanitarian assistance. This is having life-threatening consequences. The Greater Kasaï Region has the highest rate of #malnutrition in the country— in fact, 50% of the people in #mbulungu live on one meal or less a day. Donors are having trouble seeing the urgency of financially supporting humanitarian programming for returns. Only 25% of the Humanitarian Response Plan is funded. I’m asking that each of you write and put pressure on your government’s aid and development agencies to fulfill the pledges they made to DR Congo before it is too late.

Reflections and highlights from Producer, Co-Director @hlnstvs on our upcoming doc #Elikia #Repost @hlnstvs ・・・
Some clips from Elikia, the feature length I am producing and co-directing with @mklkalamo, and an amazing crew @standwithcongo. Its been a year now since we started shooting those images; interviews of activists, footage of demonstrations, trying to cover the local and global movement for peace and democracy in the DRC.

There is so much I want to say about the project, but mostly, I am super humbled to be part of an international crew that thinks outside of the box regarding ethics and narrative. I think I’ll just throw a bunch of food for thoughts/shots here that has marked the spirit and the thinking behind the film; - Most people can tell the difference between Brazil and Peru but not Namibia and Mozambique or Togo and Congo.
- People invest in subsaharian Africa through foreign non-profits and companies and never in local businesses and entrepreneurs - and there is plenty of successful ones
- Media coverage about the continent always focusses on nature, ressources, traditional culture or conflict, and never fast growing-connected economies and human capital
- There are almost never African writers/ directors/ producers/ crew members in international films about any African topic
- Too often, there is a bunch of westerners (politicians, ambassadors) explaining stuff in docs about the African continent like locals can’t speak for themselves or there are no local experts and scholars - People care about fictional Wakanda but can’t put the real, actual Wakanda that fuels all of our electronic devices on a map
- There was barely a class about African cinema in my cinema studies curriculum, but plenty about Asian and European cinema.

Stay tuned :))

Le secret que le monde cache

Hiltler a tué plus de 6 à 10 millions de juifs et Léopold II a tué plus de 15 millions de congolais.
Mais le monde ne parle que du premier et non du second. Mais pourquoi? Les congolais qui sont morts n’étaient pas des humains?

Le roi Léopold II, un meurtrier de masse, il a colonisé le congo et a tué plus de 10 à 15 millions des congolais entre 1885 et 1908.

ONE OF THESE MEN MURDERED 6 to 10 MILLION JEWS AND THE OTHER 15 MILLION CONGOLESE. WE WERE ONLY TAUGHT ABOUT ONE. Why?

King Leopold II, a mass murderer, colonised the congo and killed 10 to 15 million afrikans between 1885 to 1908
