The ongoing conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo has been called the "deadliest in the world since World War Two".  More than five million Congolese have died as the result of two decades of war.  Millions more have been displaced.  Merci Congo is an independently produced documentary film that highlights the efforts of a handful of activists, in the Congo and in the U.S., who are devoted to bringing peace to this beleaguered nation.  Shot on location in eastern Congo, Belgium, the United Kingdom and the United States.  Merci Congo aired on VICELAND in January of 2017 and is currently available for campus screenings.
