"Lumo" is a 2007 documentary film about twenty-year-old Lumo Sinai, a woman who fell victim to "Africa's First World War." While returning home one day, Lumo and another woman were gang-raped by a group of soldiers fighting for control of the Congo during the 1994 Rwandan genocide. As a result, Lumo suffered from fistula, a chronic condition that leaves a woman unable to bear children. Rejected by her fiance and most of the village, "Lumo" examines a woman's tragedy and the process of healing. [ [ PBS Synopsis] ]

"Lumo" was directed and produced by Bent-Jorgen Perlmutt Nelson Walker III Louis Abelman and Lynn True and was aired as part of PBS's Point of View series in 2007.
