An Update and the Death of Blogging

with one comment

OK– I’ve become completely hopeless about updating. If anyone is still here, this is what’s happening. The documentary film about women and sexual violence in east Congo was shot last fall in Goma. Since then, Bent-Jorgen, Nelson and I have been producing it in New York. At the end of september, we’re submitting a short version to the Sundance film festival. Other film festivals, screenings, and fundraisers will be happening in September.

BUT we have all three decided that we need to do some additional shooting before we can be truly satisfied that the documentary will reflect what’s happening in Congo, what we saw, and what we know is still happening. So we are returning to Goma in October for three months. Therefore, this blog will resume its true, and much more interesting, role of travelogue and news source for Goma, Congo and environs… starting in October… I can’t wait…
