Could we ever imagine it happening here?
This film was inspired by the true story of Masika, who lives in the Congo. But we set it in England because we want to ask the question: “Would we accept it, if it was happening here?”
Masika and her family were raped. Her husband murdered, and fed to her. Although deeply traumatised by this atrocity, she returned to search for other victims of rape and give them shelter. To date she has aided over 5,000 people.
There are hundreds of thousands of people being raped every year in a conflict that is fuelled by the trade in minerals used to make our mobile phones. This film is harrowing, but it is nothing compared to the nightmare going on in the Congo every day. Your phone manufacturer must act to stop using minerals from this region.
Sign the petition. Stop the devastating trade in “blood minerals.”
