THE MAN WHO MENDS WOMEN

Directed by Colette Braeckman, Thierry Michel

Cast: Denis Mukwege Mukengere, Hillary Clinton, Martin Spinhayer

2018 Nobel Peace Prize laureate and winner of the Sakharov Prize 2014, Doctor Denis Mukwege is internationally known as the man who has assisted thousands of women who have been sexually assaulted during the 20 years of conflicts in the East of the Democratic Republic of the 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 Denis 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 and Colette Braeckman, 2015, Belgium/Congo, 113min, documentary in French, English, Swahil and Mashi with English subtitles.)
