Most celebrated among these at this year’s Berlinale is Kim Nguyen’s “Rebelle” (War Witch), for which the young 14-year old Congolese star, Rachel Mwanza, won Best Actress at the festival.It is described as neither simple, nor sensation, a heartfelt story from the straightforward viewpoint of its young heroine, Komona, who is abducted from her village to become a child soldier. 
Filmed in Congo, Canadian director Nyugen fuses documentary aesthetics with fictionalized narrative; “the anonymity and total availability of all the performers, who ignore the camera and do not play for its benefit, contributes to the authenticity of the entire project.”
