Simply Film making at its Very Best. OUTSTANDING
27 June 2018 | by blair_rSee all my reviews

A raw honest look at mainly 3 vastly different Congolese natives, one anillegal precious stone dealer, two a tailor made to leave home for a refugee camp by the advancing destruction by the M23, and three the most alluring patriotic intelligent brutal fearless man you are to ever see on camera Colonol (kasongo) Mamadou. A Beautifully shot film with Huge Ball shrinking footage of real-time old school warfare. The editing and sound are just superb and set this documentary apart from most Good Storyville productions and any other productions for that matter. A must see with a litereral performance of the a lifetime from Colonel Mamadou. WATCH IT
