What hap­pens when hun­dreds of chil­dren from the DRC drop their tools and aban­don the mines for a new life? They go to school, start busi­ness­es and stop dying at a young age. A rare and time­ly look at the dan­gers of DR Con­go’s small-scale min­ing sec­tor that pow­ers our dig­i­tal age, this film takes the view­er to a place few have ven­tured before: inside the cop­per and cobalt mines in Kol­wezi, south­ern DRC. This film fol­lows a grass-roots ini­tia­tive that has gen­er­at­ed much con­ver­sa­tion — from the streets of Kol­wezi to the halls of the Unit­ed Nations HQ in New York — on how the Con­golese can break the cycle of pover­ty, abuse and exploita­tion inflict­ed on it by multi­na­tion­al min­ing com­pa­nies to build a sus­tain­able devel­op­ment mod­el that’s pow­ered by the coun­try’s most potent resource: its peo­ple. This Good Shep­herd project was fea­tured promi­nent­ly in a Jan­u­ary, 2016 Amnesty Inter­na­tion­al report on the inter­na­tion­al cobalt trade, and the dan­gers to chil­dren: https://goo.gl/8oZtKw Film Cred­its: Writ­ten and Filmed by Luca Par­adiso, Bern­hard Warn­er Giampao­lo Biseg­na Nar­rat­ed by Bern­hard Warn­er Edit­ed by Giampao­lo Biseg­na Luca Par­adiso Exec­u­tive Pro­duc­er Cristi­na Duran­ti for the Good Shep­herd Inter­na­tion­al Foun­da­tion http://www.maishafilm.com
