Today, in the war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo, rape is taking place on
a scale that is almost unimaginable. In the last ten years, hundreds of
thousands of women and girls have been raped – but their suffering goes
unacknowledged. Instead, they are invisible, shamed and mute.
This is the story of one filmmaker’s crusade to break the silence surrounding
this shocking reality, armed with a firsthand connection with the women and men
she meets. Winner of a Special Jury Prize (Documentary) at this year’s Sundance
Film Festival, The Greatest Silence: Rape in the Congo premieres Tuesday,
April 8 at 10pm ET/PT.
