Amazing Congo documentaries

While violence and poverty grip their countries, people in both Congo and the DRC strive for more than just making ends meet. With RTD’s Congo documentaries, explore an eccentric dandies movement, whose members proudly showcase their fancy clothes in the crumbling streets of Brazzaville, or see how a cycling club gives hope to local youngsters living next to an active volcano. Learn how the natural resources of the DRC turned from a blessing into a curse through a story of one Congolese. Or take a look at a Kinshasa shelter that saves neglected children accused of witchcraft, from scavenging and stealing on the streets.
