“Until there is Peace” by Melonie Kastman

Tuesday 29 May, 19:00 (Cinéma Galeries)

Runtime: 75′

To mark United Nations Peacekeepers Day, the United Nations and Belgian Federal Public Service Foreign Affairs present: ‘Until there is Peace’

The Democratic Republic of the Congo is home to MONUSCO – the largest UN Peacekeeping mission in the world. The 2nd largest country in Africa is under siege by 42 active rebel groups. Until There Is Peace, directed by Melonie Kastman, follows a special group of Peacekeepers from Malawi, South Africa and Tanzania, known as the Force Intervention Brigade. The FIB exemplifies African countries working together for peace. The film offers a ground floor view of this combat force, with an intimate look at their everyday lives protecting the local population under extreme and difficult circumstances. The film’s stunning visuals and original music provide a unique experience of the journey towards peace – the boundless determination of the Peacekeepers and the unbreakable spirit of the Congolese.
