Abstract:North Kivu, Democratic Republic of Congo. After a bloody civil war that lasted for years, Congolese society has lost its identity. Archaic superstitions and magical beliefs are the only elements left which still bring the population together. These forces guide the defense of the territory led by Mai-Mai rebels, but they also make people consider those who are different as a threat, which is what happens to the deaf people who live in the town of Butembo. Marginalized and refused by society, banished by their families, deaf people live like ghosts among the humans, sentenced to a stunning silence. [Abstract reproduced from dvd-video]
