Virunga

.

In the forested depths of eastern Congo lies Virunga National Park, one of the most biodiverse places on earth and home to the planet’s last remaining mountain gorillas. In this wild but enchanted environment, a small and embattled team of park rangers – including an ex-child soldier turned ranger, a caretaker of orphan gorillas and a dedicated conservationist – protect this UNESCO World Heritage site from armed militia, poachers and the dark forces struggling to control Congo’s rich natural resources.

Press

  • "Showcasing the best and the worst in human nature, von Einsiedel’s “Virunga” wrenches a startlingly lucid narrative from a sickening web of bribery, corruption and violence."
    NEW YORK TIMES, CRITIC'S PICK
  • "Urgent investigative report and unforgettable drama, "Virunga" is a work of heart-wrenching tenderness and heart-stopping suspense."
    LA TIMES
  • "Extraordinary...enough action, pathos, suspense, venal villains, stalwart heroes and endangered gorillas for a dozen fiction films”
    VARIETY
  • "Beautiful, shattering... at times hard to watch but in the end impossible to shake."
    THE WRAP
  • "Virunga is the best documentary I’ve seen this year. In fact, it is one of the best I’ve ever seen. For me, it’s the game changer that Stories We Tell and The Act of Killing were… if a movie has ever deserved to win both the best film as well as best documentary categories at the Oscars, then this is it."
    POV
  • "The fights Virunga documents couldn't feel more urgent. This is one of the year's most compelling & important films"
