Rebelle / War Witch (2012) DVD5
Shot in the Democratic Republic of Congo, War Witch is set in an unnamed Sub-Saharan country ravaged by civil war, its shanty towns and inhospitable terrains recalling any number of African countries torn apart by bloody internal struggles. Heavily pregnant 14-year-old Komona (Mwanza) begins to recount her terrible recent past to her unborn child, admitting from the off that she doesn't know if she can love the child when its born. Switching to a flashback structure, Komona's confessional draws the viewer into a world of horrific atrocities – parenticide, rape, drug abuse, civilian massacres and battles with Government forces – as she is kidnapped and forced to become a child soldier for a rebel army. With only Magicien (Serge Kanyinda), another of the forced child soldiers, showing her anything resembling compassion, Komona's childhood becomes a living nightmare.
