The new broadcast companion to Seeds of Hope



Under the Shadow is a 54 minute

documentary by Fiona Lloyd-Davies.


One woman leads Congo's rape survivors

to find healing, independence and justice through working together in the field.  

But can these women escape the shadow

cast by this threat of sexual violence and

will the spectre of justice bring hope and resolution? We hear extraordinary

confessions from soldiers who have raped women and then witness inside the court

room as others are tried for this crime, the ultimate weapon of war. 


This immersive, observational film was

made over four years, taking the viewer

inside a woman’s ultimate nightmare, to

show how the human spirit is

impossible to defeat.

Under the Shadow is distributed by Java Films
