Virunga Masterclass 22nd April

Doc Heads is pleased to announce the second in our special series of masterclasses in conjunction with Molinare. 

Join Oscar and BAFTA-nominated director Orlando Von Einsiedel  for a masterclass focussing on the critically acclaimed documentary “VIRUNGA” – as he reveals the production process behind this gripping, beautifully-shot and important film. ]

Virunga:

A powerful combination of investigative journalism and nature documentary, VIRUNGA is the incredible true story of a group of courageous people risking their lives to build a better future in a part of Africa the world’s forgotten, and a gripping exposé of the realities of life in the Congo

In the forested depths of eastern Congo lies Virunga National Park, one of the most bio-diverse places on Earth and home to the planet’s last remaining mountaingorillas. In this wild, but enchanted environment, a small and embattled team of park rangers – including an ex-child soldier turned ranger, a caretaker of orphan gorillas and a dedicated conservationist – protect this UNESCO world heritage site from armed militia, poachers and the dark forces struggling to control Congo’s rich natural resources. When the newly formed M23 rebel group declares war, a new conflict threatens the lives and stability of everyone and everything they’ve worked so hard to protect, with the filmmakers and the film’s participants caught in the crossfire.

Orlando Von Einsiedel

With his documentaries spanning Africa, Asia, America and the Arctic, winning numerous awards, screening at the world’s top film festivals and encompassing everything from a skateboard school in Kabul to the tracking and arrest of pirates in West Africa, you could genuinely say that Orlando’s filmography thus far is down right impressive. Praised by critics for his fearless filmmaking and strong sense of the people and places he covers, Orlando’s eye for striking shots, combined with his compelling global investigations into social issues, have ensured that he is unequivocally an original and talented filmmaker on the rise. VIRUNGA is Orlando’s first feature.

The running order for the evening will be as follows:

6.30pm – doors open and drinks in the bar

7.00pm – Orlando von Einsiedel and DocHeads’ Katharine Round discuss Virunga, with clips
