Synopsis

Kivu is the borderland where the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda meet. It is here, in a dense network of forests and hills, that Rwandan director Joël Karekezi’s engrossing second feature unfolds. Set in 1998, shortly after the start of the Second Congo War, THE MERCY OF THE JUNGLE follows a pair of lost Rwandan soldiers as they navigate the wilderness and confront their own existential crises.
