Storyline



©
The film was shot in the province of Kivu in the Democratic Republic of Congo, close to Rwanda, one of the most unstable regions in the world. The lake of the same name, however, that forms the border between the two countries, exudes tranquillity. The fishermen on both sides of the lake know its secrets and the dangers that hide beneath its shimmering surface. Every evening they sit by the lake together and tell tales of life and death, from poetic creation myths to traumatic experiences in the recent past. The region`s complex history of war and genocide cautiously comes out from the shadows to reveal itself. The film ran at festivals including New York/Harlem (USA) and Garoua (Cameroon), and won the prize for Best Documentary at the International Women`s Film Festival in Kigali (Rwanda).
