sienna miller, 8 minutes

Earlier this Spring, Sienna Miller traveled to the Democratic Republic of the Congo to document the lives of women living in a treacherous conflict. “I broke down twice on this trip,” she wrote in a blog entry for TakePart.com. The first time after being in the displacement camp outside Goma, seeing the woman with the colostomy bag. I had to step into an empty tent and sob. I had consciously planned on keeping it together, but the visual and the look in her eyes broke me. After that, some form of defense mechanism kicks in. Of course you feel enormous empathy but there is no room for personal emotion in these places.”

Her short documentary, titled 8 minutes, is named after the horror that a woman is raped in the Congo every 8 minutes. Have a look below — and to find out how you can help, click here.
