An Update and the Death of Blogging

OK-- I've become completely hopeless about updating. If anyone is still here, this is what's happening. The documentary film about women and sexual violence in east Congo was shot last fall in Goma. Since then, Bent-Jorgen, Nelson and I have been producing it in New York. At the end of september, we're submitting a short version to the Sundance film festival. Other film festivals, screenings, and fundraisers will be happening in September.

BUT we have all three decided that we need to do some additional shooting before we can be truly satisfied that the documentary will reflect what's happening in Congo, what we saw, and what we know is still happening. So we are returning to Goma in October for three months. Therefore, this blog will resume its true, and much more interesting, role of travelogue and news source for Goma, Congo and environs... starting in October... I can't wait...

I'm still here. I'm in it for the long haul like you guys back in the Big Apple. Good luck down in the DRC and don't forget to get in touch with Sahara Sarah and 007 in Africa and Lulu on the Bridge.

Stay in touch with us here in the Blogosphere please and let us know if I or anyone else in our little Africa sector can be of any help.

If you need to get the old 4WD up-and-running again (ref: your previous post and photo) I know some good mechanics down in Senegal. They work cheap, too :-)

Good luck Louis & Co., stay safe.
