    An investigation of the emotional and economic value of Africa's most lucrative export: filmed poverty. Deep in the interiors of the Congo, Dutch artist Renzo Martens single-handedly undertakes an epic journey and launches an emancipatory program that helps the poor become aware of what is their primary capital resource: Poverty.

    "This is a tough film in every way and truly political filmmaking of thehighest order-fearless, divisive, controversial, and necessary." (Sean Farnel, director of programming Hot Doc)

    "This is one of the most critical, provocative, bold and important films on the subject of poverty and western culpability that I have seen in years." (Sky Sitney, artistic director Silverdocs)
