Kisangani Diary

Synopsis

After the massacre perpetrated on the Tutsis in 1994, tens of thousands of Hutus fled to Zaire, and many of them never returned. These ‘forgotten’ refugees were living in poverty thousands of miles from home, plagued by famine, disease and attacks by various armed militias. This film leads us to the ‘heart of darkness’, the same place where Joseph CONRAD wrote his novel a century ago.
