Virunga documentary

Virunga documentary

First, on Tuesday 15 April, the shocking news that Virunga National Park director Emmanuel de Merode got attacked on the road between Goma and Rumangabo (he survived the gunshots and is recovering) and then the world premiere of the impressive “Virunga” documentary at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York on Thursday 17 April.



I would like to share a selection of links to the trailer of the overwhelming documentary and to news messages in the international media:
