When the city is out of gasoline, it’d be a good idea to be the man with a truckload of the stuff. It would be, but if you had to steal it from a man who doesn’t mind coming after his merchandise with thugs and guns, it’s not as bright after all.
It also might not be a great idea to try to steal away the most powerful man in the city’s girlfriend.
Unless you just love murdering men of power coming after you all the time.
Viva Riva! is the first narrative feature film to come out of the Democratic Republic of Congo in almost three decades, and it’s got all the sex, drugs and violence you could want piled high on a truckload of gasoline. The new trailer stands right next to that truck smoking a cigar.
