Bright Brass is a short film constructed in the form of a sound slide about a major issue in many African cities- street kids. In the Democratic Republic of Congo’s capital Kinshasa, where the film takes place, there are between 25,000 to 40,000 street kids facing life alone. They are either orphans or have been expelled by their families. Accusation of witchcraft is an often-cited reason for ousting a child from a household.

This self-funded film was made by Rachel Corner (photography) and Laurens Nijzink (audio). This photofilm appeared on the website of TheGuardian.co.uk on November 16, 2010 and was shortlisted for the Anthropographia Award for Human Rights 2011. Hope you enjoy!

Congo’s violent election countdown reflects rejection of regime. Attacks on opponents of President Joseph Kabila have not dented support for his main rival, Etienne Tshisekedi.

In less than a week, on 28 November, millions of Congolese are set to go to the polls to elect the country’s president for the next five years. Of the dozen candidates in the running, only two have the ability to wage a credible campaign all over the country: Joseph Kabila, for the obvious reason that he is the incumbent with all the resources of the state at his disposal, and Etienne Tshisekedi, because of his standing as the foremost leader of the Congolese democracy movement since 1980.

“Falling Whistles” has been campaigning for peace and rehabilitation of child soldiers in The Democratic Republic of Congo. Their new campaign “The Baptism of Liberty” is a brilliant short film that gives attention to Congo which is having a historic election in a few days.

Patrice Lumumba, the Congolese leader of the 1960’s, who followed in the footsteps of leaders such as Jack Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., is brought back to life in the film.

The Nyamulagira volcano in the Democratic Republic of Congo is spewing out lava in what volcanologists say may be its biggest eruption in 100 years. Experts say the volcano in the Virunga National Park does not currently threaten the town of Goma. Park rangers have set up a camp from which visitors can view the fireworks
