KINSHASA KIDS
2012, Wajnbrosse Productions, 85 min, Belgium, Dir: Marc-Henri Wajnberg

Tens of thousands of children in Congo’s capital live on its streets, expelled from their families for being “witches,” and writer-director Marc-Henri Wajnberg drew on their stories to create this uplifting, music-filled drama. Little Jose (Jose Mawanda) is one of a small group of orphans who form a makeshift band that is taken under the wing of an eccentric rapper (Bebson Elemba). Costarring Rachel Mwanza (REBELLE), the film never loses sight of the sobering reality confronting its subjects, but its high spirits will surely have you rooting for these KINSHASA KIDS. “Poised between documentary and fiction, KINSHASA KIDS benefits greatly from both.” - Ronnie Scheib, Variety. In French with English subtitles.
