La Miséricorde de la Jungle

Back to listing

Winner of the Golden Stallion at Fespaco 2019 (Festival Panafricain d’Ouagadougou) and award-winner at Chicago and at Milan, The Mercy of the Jungle was a much-needed boost for the Rwandan film industry. Set in 1998 in Kivu province on the Congo–Rwanda border, a battle-hardened sergeant and a new recruit become separated from their battalion. As war wages around them, how can they, and their humanity, survive this hostile environment?
