Opera, ballet & film: The Congo Tribunal

Milo Rau


On the occasion of our opening production, La Clemenza di Tito, directed by Milo Rau, we will screen his documentary film The Congo Tribunal.

In more than 20 years, the Congo War has claimed six million lives. The population suffers from impunity, the war-crimes have never been legally prosecuted. Due to the high occurence of 'high-tech raw materials', many consider the conflict as one of the most decisive economic battles for the share in the era of globalization.

For The Congo Tribunal, Milo Rau gathered victims, perpetrators, witnesses and analysts of the Congo War for a unique civil tribunal in Eastern Congo. For the first time in the history of this war, 3 exemplary cases were heard, exposing an unveiled portrait of one of the biggest and bloodiest economic wars in the history of mankind.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, this film cannot be shown in Antwerp on September 10.
