The life of the super-rich in Central Africa with DW – FREE
Many millionaires live in the Democratic Republic of Congo, one of the world’s poorest countries. This film depicts some of those who have made fortunes amid the chaos, including musicians, mining bosses, entrepreneurs and preachers. The DRC is rich in raw materials, but only a few profit from its natural resources. While 60% of Congo’s inhabitants live on less than $1.25 per day, businessmen, artists, former rebel leaders and evangelists are reaping the rewards of economic growth. In the capital, Kinshasa, these new rich live in safe and luxurious enclaves, while children toil in coltan mines in the eastern part of the country.
In this Weekend Watch Party, we will be watching an hour-long documentary about the lives of the super-rich in Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. We will chat about the documentary afterwards.
The Weekend Watch Party is series we have started where we watch interesting documentaries, short films, concerts interviews, or other engaging videos together on the weekend. Hosted by our team members, you will join the Watch Party live and see all your favorite friends and faces from the Alive, Fit & Free community. You can chat with each other before and after the Watch Party and discuss what we just watched in the documentary or film.
See you there this weekend!
