WorldView-funded Virunga continues to gain momentum after its world premiere at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival. The film received standing ovations after both screenings, and has since been receiving global attention.
Virunga is the story of a group of brave people risking their lives to build a better future in a part of Africa the world’s forgotten and a gripping expose of the realities of life in the Congo.
