This is Congo

A few months ago I donated some money to support a documentary film, This is Congo, on Kickstarter. I've been so busy the past few months that I've passed over their email updates on the project until today.  The film is now being supported by Worldview and is going into post-production thanks to their funding.  It's such a powerful, inspiring project that really put things into perspective for me this morning.  It always comes at the right time, doesn't it?  The situation in the Congo is so complex and incredibly interesting to me.  Tribal issues, colonial history, and resources have plagued this stunningly beautiful country for a very long time.  The best thing, seemingly, about this film is that it doesn't try to oversimplify the issues in the Congo but to educate the world about the many, complexities of the situation.  Very excited to see this.   (images from This is Congo website)
