Doctor Mukwege is internationally known as the man who mends thousands of women who have been sexually assaulted during the 20 years of conflicts in the East of the Democratic Republic of Congo. However, his endless struggle to put an end to these atrocities and denounce the impunity enjoyed by the perpetrators is not welcome. 

Threatened with death, Doctor Mukwege now lives cloistered in his hospital in Bukavu. But he is no longer alone in his struggle. The women to whom he has restored physical integrity and dignity, stand beside him, true activists for peace, hungry for justice. 

(Directed by Thierry Michel, 2015, 112 min, Democratic Republic of the Congo/Netherlands, Documentary, English and French with English subtitles)

WINNER of 5 Human Rights Awards, 3 Audience Awards, and 4 Grand Prizes for Best Documentary in festivals worldwide!
