Living Peace: The story of Abby and Kyalu

Promundo’s latest short film, “Living Peace: The Story of Abby and Kyalu“, follows a couple who were abducted by rebels in eastern Democratci Republic of Congo (DRC) in 2008. Abby was forced into hard labour and his wife, Kalyu, was raped and had a child as a result. Once they returned home, Abby expelled Kyalu. The film explores their recovery and tells their journey as part of an initiative called Living Peace, led by Promundo. The film will be launched in South Africa at the 4th International Sexual Violence Research Initiative Forum, which will be held from the 15th – 17th of September 2015.
