The Greatest Silence: Rape in the Congo

In this unflinching documentary, filmmaker Lisa Jackson travels through the Democratic Republic of Congo, exposing the grotesque realities of gendered violence. With harrowing detail, Jackson portrays the resilience and courage of the women at the center of a humanitarian crisis that has led to the death of four million people and the rape and kidnapping of tens of thousands of women and girls. Piecing together intimate and chilling footage of survivors, activists, peacekeepers, and even the rapists who are part of the Congolese army, Jackson releases an urgent telegraph of this modern horror.
