In this powerful documentary, Will Storr examines a taboo that still reigns even in the most diabolical of conflicts. The beautiful but incredibly violent Lake Kivu region of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has been dubbed the 'rape capital of the world'. In the first part of a searing two-part documentary, award-winning writer and Guardian journalist Will Storr travels to the DRC to meet the women who are menaced daily by the escaped genocidaires from neighbouring Rwanda and by their own army. He finds that they are desperate for the world to hear their harrowing stories.
