2017 Alumni

Expected to Attend: Director Daniel McCabe, Producer/Editor Alyse Ardell Spiegel, Producer Geoff McLean, Congo Field Producer Horeb Bulambo Shindano

NYC PREMIERE Filmmaker Daniel McCabe examines multiple sides of the fractious war in the Democratic Republic of Congo. We meet soldiers, rebels and a diamond merchant known as Mama Romance who allow us to make human connections in a chaotic conflict. This is Congo premiered at the Venice Film Festival where Variety wrote, ‘The film soars when it plays up to McCabe’s grounding as a photographer, exploring the rapturous natural landscape, bustling incidental street life and rattling war-zone chaos of the Congo with wholly cinematic vigor.’
