Empire of Dust is a 2011 German documentary directed by Bram Van Paesschen. The documentary follows two employees of the Chinese Railway Engineering Company (CREC): Lao Yang, manager of a Chinese mining company's logistics group, and his driver/interpreter Eddy, a Congolese who speaks Mandarin, as they work to rebuild a road connecting a mining site in Kolwezi to Lubumbashi, the capital of what was then Katanga Province.[1] It is in the context of a trade deal between the People's Republic of China and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.[2]
