World Premiere, Rio 2013

With unparalleled bravery, journalist Shanny Hazzia goes behind the scenes of one of the most dangerous black markets in the world. In an attempt to unravel some of the mystery behind the uranium trade, she travels to Congo where her rare documentation allows a peak into the shady dealings of “the yellow market”. Congo is a conflict ridden country where many regions are controlled by militias. With little or no supervision the main victims become the villagers who live near the uranium mines. A powerful piece of journalism that takes on a very hot topic.
