VIRUNGA

Africa's oldest national park containing the last natural habitat for endangered mountain gorillas exists in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. As civil unrest grows within the DRC, a British oil company pursues efforts to drill in this UNESCO world heritage site. A small number of park rangers and a determined journalist fight to secure the park's borders from poachers and businessmen alike. VIRUNGA shockingly exposes blatant corruption, highlighting the political and environmental crisis in the Congo. – SB
