ABOUT THE FILM

Telling the story of two impressive men, SÍRÍRÍ illuminates the conflict over gold and diamonds in the Central African Republic.

In the Central African Republic, rebels have abused religion as a tool to convince Christians and Muslims to kill each other. Warlords control almost all of the territory and its resources. A cardinal and an imam try to mediate together. They travel through the bush and forest to listen to the people and bring armed men to their senses. Neither hesitates to call on the authorities and international community to assume their responsibilities or ask who profits from this conflict. Who sells weapons to the rebels, and who buys the gold and diamonds?
