Weapon of War

Press

  • Educational Media Reviews Online
    “Recommended. The film strongly conveys…how the violence and inhumanity spawned by war impact individual lives and nations.”
  • Dutch Film Awards Jury statement
    "The documentary unambiguously shows that elementary human values disappear in extreme conditions. As viewers we witness the confrontation of people with their own actions. The film shows how they try to reconcile with both themselves and with their victims. This film is about the systematic rapes of women and children in Congo. By focusing the camera on the perpetrators and their attempts at self-insight, not only a shocking picture of war methods is revealed. It also shows the will to break through this horrendous cycle of violence."
