The Greatest Silence: Rape in the Congo is a 2008 documentary film directed by Lisa F. Jackson. The film tells of the treatment of women in the Democratic Republic of Congo, focusing on the systematic use of sexual violence as a tool of war. Lisa F. Jackson, herself a victim of gang rape, tells her story while relating the stories of several Congolese women.
She speaks also with police officers, international peacekeepers and the rapists themselves. She also shows a clinic devoted to treating women with traumatic injury due to sexual violence, particularly cases of vesicovaginal and rectovaginal fistula.
