Congo [electronic resource]: White King, Red Rubber, Black Death

This documentary describes how King Leopold II of Belgium turned the Congo into its private colony between 1885 and 1908. Under his control, the Congo became a gulag labor camp of shocking brutality. Leopold posed as the protector of Africans fleeing Arab slave-traders but, in reality, he carved out an empire based on terror to harvest rubber. Families were held as hostages, starving to death if the men failed to produce enough wild rubber. Children's hands were chopped off as punishment for late deliveries. The Belgian government has denounced this documentary as a "tendentious diatribe" for depicting King Leopold II as the moral forebear of Adolf Hitler, responsible for the death of 10 million people in his rapacious exploitation of the Congo. Yet, it is agreed today that the first [...]

Discovering Herge [electronic resource]

This documentary tracks the course of Hergé's stories of Tintin, a young adventurer Georges Remi used to chronicle turbulent 20th century events. From early Catholic influenced, anti-communist and racially insensitive stories "Tintin in the Land of the Soviets" and "Tintin in the Congo" to the anti-fascist "King Ottokar's Sceptre," to more socially progressive adventures such as "Tintin in Tibet," Hergé's evolving political and cultural views are traced through his 22 book series. With archived footage and expert interviews, this film charts Hergé's journey from a Belgian boy scout to a mature cartoonist, during which he created a timeless classic that connects with readers worldwide.
