Salaam, Amani, Peace: Festivals in Goma, DR Congo

In a context of ongoing violence and N.G.O. intervention in Eastern Congo, a festival culture is emerging based on the concept of “peace-building” through the arts. With the guidance of professor Chérie Ndaliko and local artists, we explore the ways in which these festivals can negatively or positively affect the local arts community. Produced and hosted by Morgan Greenstreet. (Note: Salaam Kivu International Film Festival is now Congo International Film Festival.) [Distributed 11/22/2016]
