"Doc examines the horrific phenomenon of widespread rape and torture of women by rebel soldiers (and, sometimes, government troops and U.N. peacekeepers) during the decade-long civil war in the Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Zaire). Many of these atrocities, "Greatest Silence" persuasively argues, are methodically carried out to sustain a climate of political and economic instability in a country where valuable natural resources -- including coltan, an ore used in cell phones and laptops -- are exploited by profiteers."

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.
