Congo: White King, Red Rubber, Black Death
By re-creating King Leopold II of Belgium's brutal 19th century colonization of the Congo with modern-day actors, filmmaker Peter Bate presents a tragic chapter of European history that's been largely forgotten. In the process of harvesting rubber from a vast forced labor camp nestled in the region -- ruled with an iron fist by His Majesty himself -- millions of innocent Africans would die for the sake of profit.
