VIVA RIVA!
~Kinshasa is Calling~


Release Date
June 10, 2011


Director
Djo Tunda Wa Munga

Directed and Produced
Democratic Republic of Congo

Language
Lingala, French w/English subtitles

A seductively vibrant, lawless, fuel-starved sprawl of shantytowns, gated villas, bordellos and nightclubs and Riva is its perfect embodiment. Riva is a small time operator who has just returned to his hometown of Kinshasa, Congo with a major score: a fortune in hijacked petrol. With wads of cash and all out for a good time, Riva is soon entranced by a beautiful kept woman of a local gangster. Into the mix comes Riva's Angolan crime lord ex-boss relentlessly seeking the return of a certain stolen shipment of gasoline.
