 Have You Seen Merci Congo?

Merci Congo takes an unflinching look at the horror on the ground in eastern Congo, including the incredible failings of a corrupt and incompetent Congolese government. The film explores the stories of individual activists – including a schoolteacher, a polio survivor, the CEO of a major tech company, a Congolese lawyer and an American college student – who are working to bring peace to this beleaguered nation, whether by supporting victims of sexual violence, empowering women in remote areas with technology or cutting funds to rebels by changing a business model.
