“This isn’t a documentary about the six-day War in congo. It’s not a question of making an exhaustive, historical, educational film about what happened between Rwandans and Ugandans on the streets of Kisangani in 2000. It’s a film about a courageous woman – known as Maman Colonelle – who, by discovering the extreme suffering of a group of women, raped and broken by this war, decides to try to help these women to rebuild themselves and their lives. The six-day War is there-fore treated exclusively from the point of view of Maman Colonelle. Viewers discover this reality with her; they seek to understand what happened along with her; and through her eyes, they will be surprised by the gravity of the situation and by the indifference of people towards the victims.” (Dieudo Hamadi)
