Screening of Academy Award Nominee “Virunga”

The Movie:

In the forested depths of eastern Congo lies Virunga National Park, one of the most bio-diverse places in the world and home to the last of the mountain gorillas.

In this wild, enchanted environment, a small and embattled team of park rangers – including a caretaker of orphan gorillas and a Belgian conservationist – protect this UNESCO world heritage site from armed militia, poachers and the dark forces struggling to control Congo’s rich natural resources.

When the newly formed M23 rebel group declares war in May 2012, a new conflict threatens the lives and stability of everyone and everything they’ve worked so hard to protect.

VIRUNGA is the incredible true story of a group of brave people risking their lives to build a better future in a part of Africa the world has forgotten and a gripping exposé of the realities of life in the Congo.

An Oscar nominee for Best Documentary.
