City of Joy
From the Daily Dot
Netflix documentary City of Joy goes deep into the war-torn Eastern Congo, a place ravaged by violence. Director Madeleine Gavin takes viewers to a small gated community, dubbed City of Joy. Its occupants are women who have survived unspeakable suffering at the hands of militias. City of Joy gives light to survivors and the efforts of those working to heal their community. Tough as it can be to watch at times, City of Joy is a paean to perseverance.
