Urgent investigative reporting and unforgettable drama, VIRUNGA is a work of heart-wrenching tenderness and heart-stopping suspense.
With enough action, pathos, suspense, venal villains, stalwart heroes and endangered gorillas for a dozen fiction films, Orlando von Einsiedel’s extraordinary documentary VIRUNGA lays out the complex of deadly forces threatening the titular national park, an UNESCO-designated World Heritage site in Eastern Congo.
Showcasing the best and the worst in human nature, director/writer/producer Orlando von Einsiedel’s devastating documentary, VIRUNGA, wrenches a startlingly lucid narrative from a sickening web of bribery, corruption and violence.
Rangers in Africa’s oldest national park try to hold poachers and a powerful oil company at bay. Orlando von Einsiedel’s powerful film VIRUNGA depicts a band of national park rangers as possibly the last line of defense against another foreign rape of the country’s natural resources.
