Doc || The Testimony

This film The Testimony covers the incredibly painful story of the largest rape tribunal in Congo's history. It is unbelievable to see how many woman have suffered from this outrageously long period of war. The documentary lets a few brave women speak up and share their story. So many of these woman are left by their husbands because of the shame that is brought about with rape. They are seen as "used up" or "useless" to society. It is truly heart breaking to hear these strong women trying to over come such a traumatic event in their lives. It is devastating to think that after being raped, they are then outcasted by their own families. Victims of rape should be cared for and be surrounded with love and support to create an environment where they can begin to over come that event. Absolute must see.
