Mission: Congo
Televangelist, multi-millionaire and leader of the religious right, Pat Robertson is a man on a mission. During an escalating refugee crisis in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Robertson ran a media blitz on the Christian Broadcasting Network to raise money for his charity, Operation Blessing. Over the airwaves, he gave glowing reports of the charitys relief efforts in Congo, raising donations from viewers eager to assist. But the filmmakers document a very different mission: diamond mining.

Post-screening discussion with Lara Zizic & David Turner.

Congo in Harlem is an annual series of films, artwork, panel discussions, and special events focused on the history, politics, and culture of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The goal of the series is to deepen our communities understand of DR Congo through art and dialogue. Congo in Harlem is more than just movies and discussions -- it's an opportunity to discover Congo's culture, learn about it's challenges, and get involved. This series is non-profit and volunteer-run, produced by True Walker Productions, Friends of the Congo and the Maysles Documentary Center. It is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by Lower Manhattan Community Council.
