THE TESTIMONY chronicles the largest rape trial in the history of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, offering a glimpse into the lives of its women and the unshakable strength of the human spirit. First time filmmaker Director Vanessa Block decided to travel to one of the most dangerous places on earth to tell the story of young women who fight back against their brutalization by largely unaccountable social and political institutions. Block’s determination to tell their story results in an illuminating and hopeful documentary.
Laguna Film Festival was founded with the purpose of showcasing the work of emerging filmmakers. We are fortunate to be sponsored by Oops Doughnuts Productions (Reefer Madness, She’s the Man, The Game Plan, Race to Witch Mountain, You Again, Parental Guidance, Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, Liv and Maddie, Internet Icon, Heathers the Musical, and the upcoming horror-comedy Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse) to help put together an amazing weekend filled with short film screenings, as well as panels comprised of professionals who have truly made their mark in the entertainment industry. All screenings will be held at the state-of-the-art Regency Directors Cut Cinema in Laguna Niguel.
Come see THE TESTIMONY at the Laguna Film Festival. This Friday 7-9PM. Q&A to follow with the filmmaker, Vanessa Block.
