Trailer for 'City of Joy' Documentary About a Congo Women's Center

City of Joy Trailer

"We have to tell the truth about what has happened to us." Netflix has debuted a new trailer for an indie documentary titled City of Joy, which will be available for streaming starting in September. In 2011, the "City of Joy" opened its doors in Eastern Congo with the goal of building a peaceful and transformational community for women survivors of violence. The film follows the first class of students at this remarkable leadership center in a place often referred to as "the worst place in the world to be a woman." These women have been through unspeakable violence spurred on by a 20 year war driven by colonialism and greed. They band together with the three founders of this center: Dr. Denis Mukwege, radical playwright and activist Eve Ensler ("The Vagina Monolgoues") and human rights activist, Christine Schuler-Deschryver, to find a way to create meaning in their lives even when all that was meaningful to them has been stripped away.
