Spirit of a Bloody King

katanga-ilustration

Belgian filmmaking globetrotter Thierry Michel has revisited Congo, a former colony of his native country, referred to as “the dark heart” of Africa. After his successful films Mobutu, King of Zaire and River Congo, Beyond Darkness, he has extended his Congo filmography byKatanga Business. Providing a realistic and critical look behind the scenes of the mining of strategic resources, the documentary reveals the deep scar dug into the land and lives of the inhabitants of one of the most fascinating and tried African countries by the shovel of globalized corporate industry. Thierry Michel gives unceasing evidence to the fact that the times of colonial barbarism and rampant plundering, started by the infamous “bloody” king Leopold II in Congo in the 19th century, are not yet over. Katanga Business is available in premiere at DAFilms.com from April 30. During the first two days, you can stream the film for free.
