Friends, my hiatus from the site is not permanent. While BJ is in Uganda working for Witness.org, we have translated most of the footage and hope to put it together by summer's end. Meanwhile, it's been about putting together promotional material and searching for funding. I am also working on a new website with video uplinks. Do check back here eventually (a month or so?) for updates, but patience is the watchword.

Congo's fortunes are neither up or down, and a dire situation continues unabated. Some reporters do their jobs well-- I liked this article recently in the Boston Globe-- but as you may read, hope really is only a glimmer.

N.B.: DOCS Africa has changed its name to HEAL Africa after some changes to the organization. Their new site is www.healafrica.org. Please give them all your money.

No sweat Louis. I'll keep checking for updates. I saw and read that Boston Globe report of July 10th, 2005. The story was also covered over at Sahara Sarah's blog (Breaking Hearts in the Heart of Darkness). Sarah is doing some good work in Kindu, D.R.C. so chekout her blog when you can find the time. Here is the link:

Good luck with everything and please keep us posted and updated on your documentary release.

bre-- thanks for checking in! I just looked at Sarah's blog and she made me feel like a drama queen.
