KATANGA, THE WAR OF COPPER

Thierry Michel

After Mobutu, King of Zaire and Congo River, Thierry Michel pursues his exploration of Africa and leads us to Katanga in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. In this a modern-day El Dorado, new world economic relations are woven through billion-dollar transactions. An extremely wealthy provincial governor, praised by the masses; a Belgian manager also known as “The King of Katanga”, a Canadian CEO and a kind of white sorcerer attempting to save an obsolete, State-run industrial empire; a Chinese businessman who just signed the mining contract of the century with the Congolese government – these are the characters of Thierry Michel’s new film. And these are the people who draw up the new strategic alliances in Africa today.
