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
