Seeds of Hope*

In a region known as the most dangerous place in the world for women, eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, one woman shines a beacon of hope to dispel the despair of women survivors of rape. Masika Katsuva, herself the victim of multiple rapes, has rescued some 6,000 women and children. In this searing film we also meet the perpetrators of rape, among them soldiers from the Congolese army. These men give extraordinarily open testimony as to why they rape and their attitudes towards their horrific acts. Directed by Fiona Lloyd-Davies. Running Time: 75 minutes.

*The film is part of the Pulitzer Center Film Festival "Global Crises, Human Stories" - http://pulitzercenter.org/events/pulitzer-center-film-festival-abominable-crime-homophobia-jamaica-women-pakistan-civilian-casualties-sri-lanka-rape-congo-photography

    I had planned to walk here but didn't realize the weather is going to get into the 40's this evening (makes it hard to believe summer was just a couple days ago). I didn't dress for that cool of temperature so I'm going to back out of attending. Everyone who is please enjoy and post a critique if possible.

    I wish I could join you all for this! I will try to see the film later on in the week. I'll be attending a forum on mass incarceration at the same time as this screening.
