Justice For Sale Screening + Q&A

A Congolese lawyer exposes her faulty justice system

Congolese human rights lawyer Claudine Tsongo discovers that a soldier, Masamba, who was convicted of rape, had a corrupt and unfair trial. During her journey to bring him true justice, she exposes the unfair system where principles of law are ignored, and the fact that international and non-governmental organisations’ financial support within the Congolese judicial system causes justice to, essentially, be for sale. It’s a harsh reality, and another beautiful documentation by twin filmmakers Ilse and Femke van Velzen. The incomprehensible hurdles they face will absolutely baffle you. And you'll get to grill the Velzen twins in a Q&A after the screening. ‘Law and Order goes to the Congo in Justice for Sale, a smart and to-the-point study of a disputed rape case investigated in and out of the courtroom.’ - The Hollywood Reporter. General admission. Please arrive on time.
