Made in Ilima a documentary by Thatcher Bean ( Congo / US )
In the center of Equator Province, Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Ilima community remains one of the most isolated in the world. They have coexisted with endangered wildlife in their surrounding forest for generations, but as the pace of development has increased, this fragile ecosystem has suffered. They partnered with the African Wildlife Foundation and MASS Design Group in 2012 to create a new conservation focused primary school and community center - one that had to endure for generations, yet be built almost exclusively using local materials.
Cinematographer and educator Rachel Brose grew up in the Congo and relocated to Ilima in order to document this entire collective process - one aimed at leveraging local craft and ecological knowledge towards education, preservation, and beauty.
