My Body Is Not A Weapon

Date: June 29, 2019
“My Body is Not a Weapon,' the debut film by world renown photographer Platon (USA), documents the harrowing experience of wartime rape survivors and forced child laborers, and the extraordinary holistic healing sanctuary, Panzi Hospital. It is there that we meet Sandra, survivor of rape as a weapon of war, and Dr. Denis Mukwege. He and his team have treated more than 52,000 survivors of sexualized violence with medical, psychosocial, and holistic healing care. There is an innovative music therapy program at Panzi, and Sandra is a prodigious song writer. She wrote 'My Body is Not a Weapon' with her fellow survivors, and it is her haunting voice that sings the title song.
