Viva Riva! is unique in both its gritty and frank depictions of the Congolese crime world and in its cinematic and technical beauty as a film originating from one of the poorest countries in the world. Director Djo Munga's first feature tells the story of corrupt operator Riva looking to cash in on a secret stash of oil in the petrol-strapped city of Kinshasa. Trouble looms for the protagonist as his previously spurned employer has military officers hot on his heels.
