The Project

CHE IN CONGO is a unique approach to understanding Congo's past, present and future by award-winning photojournalist Jan-Joseph Stok and Palme D'Or nominated filmmaker Ben Crowe. Through photography and film we explore this unrevealed chapter of Che Guevara's life. How do the ideals of Che - of liberty, equality, justice and self determination - resonate with the Congolese of today? The project touches on many of the issues that the people of Congo face in their daily lives and their dreams for a better future.
