Fighting the Silence tells the stories of women whose lives have been rent apart by rape. A woman is shown systematically, almost frantically, washing her head over and over again. “They don’t wash,” she says, speaking of the soldier who attacked her. “Their clothes are riddled with lice and they rape…This is why I wash every time I smell their scent.” Another man speaks about coming home to find his children standing around his wife who lay on the bed crying. Upon learning that she had been raped by soldiers while their children watched, he sent her back to her village. “I cannot share my wife with a Burundian,” he says flatly. Unfortunately, such a reaction is not uncommon. Though rape has become widespread the stigma makes many women reluctant to speak out, for fear that they will be abandoned or ostracized by their families and communities. Fighting the Silence is a powerful film with a hands-off approach to documentary filmmaking that allows the subjects to speak for themselves. However, Ilse and Femke quickly realized two things: 1) They were only telling half of the story and 2) They needed to take the film back to the Congo. They addressed these points with their new film Weapon of War and by partnering with Search for Common Ground to bring the films to Congolese audiences through mobile cinema.
