Fueling The War is a project film by Raquel Villaécija and Alberto Rojas that will be publish in ELMUNDO.es.
After 20 years of killings and more that five million deaths, the east region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is one of the poorest, unstable and underdeveloped area on earth. With more than 300 army groups and the most expensive UN military deployments, the war keeps ongoing due to the illegal blood mineral traffic and other nasty interests. Summarizing, it seems that in RDC the war is more profitable than the peace. The multimedia project 'Fueling the war' intends to analyze the dirty interests involved in this never-ending conflict.
We'd like to make this project because there is very few literature on the issue on the conflict, nothing in spanish. This conflict has never been cover following data journalism methodology. This will be the first multimedia project in Spain and in spanish covering conflict in DRC.
