Congo In Harlem 6: Virunga + Closing Night Celebration
Congo In Harlem 6
(October 19th - 26th)

Congo in Harlem at New York's Maysles Cinema is an annual series of films, panel discussions, performances, parties and special events focused on the history, politics, and culture of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The aim of the series is to deepen our community's understanding of Congo through art and dialogue. Each year, we strive to offer a diverse program that provides more than the traditional movie-going experience -- at Congo in Harlem, our audiences find opportunities to discover Congolese food, music, and artwork, learn about Congo's challenges, and get involved.

Saturday, October 25th, 7:00pm

Virunga + Closing Night Celebration
Orlando Von Einsiedel, 2014, 97 min.

Virunga Park, the oldest National Park in Africa and home to the last of the mountain gorillas, is one of the most bio-diverse places in the world -- it also happens to be one of the most unstable. In 2012 it was the site of a standoff between the M23 rebel group and Congo's national army, and is full of rich minerals coveted by a shady, money-hungry multi-national corporation. Amid these threats, a brave collection of individuals -- including an ex-child soldier turned ranger, a gorilla handler, a Belgian conservationist, and a French journalist -- risk their lives to protect the park, and Von Einsiedel's sensational documentary tells their story.

Followed by post-screening discussion with special guests TBA + Closing Night Celebration with refreshments and live music by Isaac Katalay and the Life Long Project
