COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

Les militants de La Lucha sont nés dans la guerre de l’Est du Congo. Même s’ils font face à une répression toujours plus violente, les jeunes de La Lucha sont déterminés à changer leur pays. Ils refusent la résignation et luttent pacifiquement, par des actions sur le terrain, pour le départ du Président Kabila qui empêche la tenue des élections. C’est un moment-clef de l’histoire tumultueuse du Congo.

In the Democratic Republic of Congo, a group of Congolese youths has stood up without arms against their President who was determined to cling to power. As they fought, they have learned that success comes with a price. They are called La Lucha. Shot over a period of two years, Congo Lucha – Bye Bye Mr President, documents their struggle. Luc, Espoir and Rebecca have grown up in the endless war of Eastern Congo. Now adults, they struggle peacefully for democracy in their country, which they believe is the only way to bring an end to the war. In face of their determination and the one of their comrades of La Lucha, the Congolese authorities will use their usual tools: repression and violence. But this will not stop their struggle to continue and get some achievements.
