Campus Location:Manetti Shrem Museum
Location of Event:UC Davis Campus
Event Type:Arts and Entertainment
Presented by:UC Davis Humanities Institute

A whistleblower, a patriotic military commander, a mineral dealer, and a displaced tailor share a glimpse of life amid Africa’s longest continuing conflict. Over the last two decades, the Democratic Republic of Congo has seen more than 5 million conflict-related deaths, multiple changes of government, and the wholesale impoverishment of its people. This is Congo provides an immersive and unfiltered look at this lush, mineral-rich country, from the rise of Rwandan and Ugandan-backed M23 rebels in the North Kivu region of Congo in 2012 to the present day via four profoundly resilient characters.

This event made possible by the generous support of Elizabeth Spiller, Dean of UC Davis College of Letters and Science, Manetti Shrem Museum, Ann E. Pizter Center, Crocker Art Museum and the yamada-Hosley Family Fund.
