France 24 launches world's first iPad documentary

Latest update : 2010-08-03

France 24 is proud to announce the launch of the first-of-its-kind interactive documentary designed exclusively for the Apple iPad.

"Rape in Congo: Peace Violated" is an arresting multimedia report produced in the North Kivu region of the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo.

This powerful documentary blends images, sound and video to tell the story of those that fight against the crime of rape on a daily basis. While the documentary highlights the widespread pain resulting from one of the world’s bloodiest conflicts, it is also an investigation into the possible sources of hope for the country.

The DRC is a country of war and plunder. One of the tragic hallmarks of this lo

ng, violent struggle has been the widespread use of rape as a weapon of war.

Journalists Zoé Lamazou and Sarah Leduc travelled to North Kivu to investigate this dire phenomenon, and have used text, photography, video and sound to paint a vivid, interactive portrait of the challenges confronting thousands of people across the region.

When the two reporters returned to Paris, France 24’s editorial and technical teams decided to set a themselves a challenge: to produce the world’s first documentary exclusively for the iPad platform.

Apple’s new device has allowed them to explore new methods of putting the story at the center of a report. A month later, after some cold sweats and intense reflection, the report is finally ready.

A new format, a new way of working: France 24, a pioneering network in multimedia journalism, aims to show that reporting can draw upon different techniques to make itself available to the largest possible audience in a variety of exciting, enriched formats.

The application is available free and can be downloaded in either French or English by anyone using an Apple iPad.
