(Documentary by Angèle Diabang Brener, 52 min.)
Through the work of Dr. Denis Mukwege, gynecologist and founder of Panzi, a hospital whose primary mission is treating women who have been raped the film highlights the atrocities perpetrated on Congolese women, but also offers vivid accounts of their resilience and determination to not be defined by the crimes committed against them. Dr. Mukwege was the recipient of the Nobel Prize for Peace in 2018.
