"City of Joy, is as heartbreaking as it is uplifting, as shocking as it is life affirming."
This Week in New York

After its successful screenings at DocNYC (where it world premiered) and as the Centerpiece Film at the Athena Film Festival, the CITY OF JOY documentary continues on at film festivals across the United States, with more being added.

In Dallas and Cleveland, Madeleine Gavin, the film's director, will appear for the screening or a post-screening Q&A. In Ashland, City of Joy Director Christine Schuler-Deschryver will appear. See tour dates below for details.

CITY OF JOY follows the first class of women at a revolutionary leadership center in Congo, weaving their journey with that of the center's founders (2016 Nobel Peace Prize nominee Dr. Denis Muwkege, women's rights activist Christine Schuler-Deschryver, and writer and activist Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Monologues) - three individuals who imagined a place where women who have suffered horrific rape and abuse can heal and become powerful voices of change for their country.

A story about the resilience of the human spirit, CITY OF JOY witnesses Congolese women's fierce will to reclaim hope, even when so much of what was meaningful to them has been stripped away.
