Abstract:'Kinshasa 2.0' tells the story of how the arrest of Marie-Thérèse Nlandu, a presidential candidate from a prominent political family in the Democratic Republic of Congo, was publicized through the Internet and resulted in filmmaker Teboho Edkins visiting Kinshasa to see how the arrest has affected the family. Imprisoned for having openly spoken about the absence of democracy, the internet campaign contributes to Nlandu's liberation. Oscillating between a militarized Kinshasa and Second Life (a tridimensional visual chat), the film examines the subversive power of internet on democracy while making a disturbing portrait of an African capital.
