188574 The Greatest Silence: Rape in the Congo (80 min.). Dir. Lisa F. Jackson. Shot in the war zones of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), this extraordinarily powerful award-winning film shatters the silence that surrounds the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war. During the decade-long brutal war in the DRC, many tens of thousands of women and girls have been systematically kidnapped, raped, mutilated,and tortured by soldiers from both foreign militias and the Congolese army. A survivor of rape herself, filmmaker Lisa F. Jackson travels through the DRC to understandwhat is happening and why. Information: www.wmm.com/.
