Joel Karekezi, 2019, 91min
At the outbreak of the Second Congo War (1998-2003), two Rwandan soldiers are accidentally left behind in the jungle as their army advances westward across Congo. One is a seasoned sergeant and the other a young private. With only each other to count on, they embark on an odyssey through hostile territory and face the depths of their own souls.

Congo in Harlem is made possible with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
