This long-term observation set in the Central African Republic will arouse anger and sadness in all viewers. A simple notebook serves as the starting point: on its pages, around 300 women, girls and men describe what was done to them by the mercenaries that Jean-Pierre Bemba, the then President of the neighboring country of Congo, sent into the CAR. Bemba is now a defendant at the International Criminal Court (ICC).
The notebook could serve as important evidence – not least because for the first time rape is being recognized as a war crime in The Hague. But even as the hearing is underway, the next war breaks out in the Central African Republic – and the victims of the past must suffer once more.
