Movie night ‘City of Joy’ (UNYA Antwerpen)
On Thursday 04 April, UNYA Antwerpen will have their second movie night where they will watch the Netflix movie ‘City of Joy’.
Dr. Dennis Mukwege, Nobel Peace Prize winner 2018 and director of the Panzi Hospital in Congo, is one of the main characters in the movie that you will recognize from the honorary degrees. So after the honorary degrees, you can see his daily work in the movie.
The movie follows students at work in a remarkable leadership centre in the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, a region often referred to as “the worst place in the world to be a woman.” These women have been through unspeakable violence spurred on by a 20-year war driven by colonialism and greed.
