For two years, the Irish film-maker and photographer Richard Mosse travelled in eastern Congo together with cameraman Trevor Tweeten, trailing rebel groups and visiting places plagued by violence and terror. So far, more than five million people have been killed in a civil war that has been raging since the end of the 90s.


“The Enclave” is a film installation that condenses authentic soundscapes and the terrifying, eerily coloured images captured on 16mm infrared film into an uncanny elegy to a nightmare known as war.


When we see tanks driving around and people burying the dead in “The Enclave”, then it is not in the manner of the war reporter’s documentary material, but rather as an artistic, personal approach to this horror. The installation was on show at last year’s Venice Biennale and is now set to screen as an Austrian premiere at musikprotokoll at the steirischer herbst festival.
