Double-Bill Screening: India’s Hidden War and Congo: The UN’s Dirty War (Unreported World)
India’s Hidden War
Unreported World travels deep into the Indian jungle to show how the country’s economic aspirations are fuelling an increasingly bloody civil war.
Far from the view, government-funded militias are battling Maoist guerrillas for control of India’s mineral resources while hundreds of thousands of tribal villagers are caught in the middle.
Congo: The UN’s Dirty War:
Unreported World travels to the war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo, and uncovers evidence that UN troops are supporting Congolese government forces even as they carry out indiscriminate attacks, sometimes against civilian targets.
Reporter Aidan Hartley and producer James Brabazon travel to the Ituri region of Congo, where they film the combat at close quarters, as government forces battle militias for control of the country’s mineral and timber resources.
Hartley and Brabazon speak to survivors of government attacks, soldiers and the director of UN operations.
Three and a half million people have been killed in the conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo and civilians have found themselves under attack from all sides.
