His new documentary, entitled Katanga Business, is a kind of political economic thriller, which takes place in this south-eastern province of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, one of the world’s richest regions in mining resources. While the inhabitants of Katanga continue to live in extreme poverty, multinationals are rivalled by China, newly arrived with its billions of dollars. Staged on economic war, Katanga Business is a tale of globalisation)

(Alain Deneault is a philosopher and professor of sociology at the University of Quebec at Montreal. He is the author of several books including Noir Canada, which exposes widespread human rights abuses, economic crimes and political tentacles of private companies operating in Africa. Professor Deneault will focus his presentation on multinationals in the DRC. He will discuss how multinationals are guilty of corruption, institutionalized looting of mineral resources, and how they have exacerbated instability and armed conflicts for easy profits.)
