Another intriguing (and in this case, harrowing) screening and Q&A coming up at the journalism centre Frontline Club this July. They showcase at least 2-4 current affairs oriented screenings each month, usually with cast and crew present:

From the Frontline Club Site:

In the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, Masika Katsuva, herself the victim of multiple rapes, has rescued some 6,000 women and children. Her centre provides medical and psychological help, and she also works with the women to cultivate maize and bean crops to have an independent life.

Filmmaker Fiona Lloyd-Davies follows Katsuva and the centre’s inhabitants, as they reshape their lives to build a new future. The film also speaks with the perpetrators, among them soldiers from the Congolese army, who give extraordinarily open testimony as to why they rape and their attitudes toward their horrific acts.Directed by Fiona Lloyd-Davies
