Rising Sons

How do you end a culture of rampant rape? Congolese couple Camille and Esther Ntoto decided that first you must offer men a new vision of themselves and of women. Their program, Sons of Congo, is shown in this intimate, revelatory documentary through the voices of participants. In eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, where the Ntotos work, roaming militias often use brutal rape as a weapon of war, and it is believed one of every three women and girls in the region have been raped. Educating men, one small group at a time, is helping disrupt and end this cycle of violence.
