Kisangani Diary

 1994. After the massacre of the Tutsis, 80,000 Hutus fled from Rwanda to Zaire. They now live in poverty alongside the overgrown railway south of Kisangani, plagued by famine, disease and persecution from armed militia. In 1997, Hubert Sauper travelled in a UN train in search of these “lost” refugees. In KISANGANI DIARY Sauper leads the viewer to mysterious places where massacres had happened only the night before, and accompanies the helpless attempts of assistance.
