City of Joy Screening

April 28, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


City of Joy Screening


Devastated by 20-plus years of violence, the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo is often referred to as, “the worst place in the world to be a woman.” This film brings a very different story from the region.  CITY OF JOY, directed by first-time director Madeleine Gavin, follows the first class of women at a revolutionary leadership center in eastern DRC called City of Joy, from which  the film derives its title, and weaves their journey as burgeoning leaders with that of the center’s founders (Dr. Denis Mukwege, 2018 Nobel Peace Prize laureate, women’s rights activist Christine Schuler Deschryver and radical feminist Eve Ensler, author of the Vagina Monologues) – three individuals who imagined a place where women who have suffered horrific rape and abuse can heal and become powerful voices of change for their country. This movie has emotional triggers and is best suited for mature audiences.
