Will one of the bloodiest economic wars of human history decide the future order of the global community?

‘The Congo Tribunal’ is a film and theatre production of Milo Rau and the International Institute of Political Murder (IIPM).

In the form of a tribunal with an international cast and filmed on-location in Eastern Congo and in Berlin, the theatre & film project „The Congo Tribunal“ examines the causes and backgrounds for the war now ongoing for almost 20 years in the Great Lakes region. The result is a humanly harrowing, profound analytic tableau of the neo-colonial world order.

Triggered by the Rwandan genocide of 1994 and based on the direct or indirect involvement of all of the great powers of our time, the Congo War, also referred to as the „Third World War“, has claimed up to six million lives. Many observers not only see in it a fight about political predominance in Central Africa, but also one of the most decisive economic division-battles in the era of globalization. While the number of rebel armies involved may be intransparent, even more intransparent are the arms dealers operating in the supply lines, the role of foreign diplomats and humanitarian relief organizations, but also the involvement of multinational mining companies. Will one of the biggest and bloodiest economic wars of human history decide the future order of the global community?
