Virunga

Netflix has certainly been making waves in original programming from series like "House of Cards" to new seasons of "Arrested Development," not to mention original stand-up specials and documentaries like The Battered Bastards of Baseball. Now they have another doc coming this fall, and it looks like a powerful one. Virunga will get a limited theatrical release to qualify for the Oscars at the same time it premieres on the streaming service and it takes a look at a conflict surrounding the African Congo, where the world’s last remaining mountain gorilla population lives in the forested depths of the Virunga National Park. Watch!

Here's the first trailer for Orlando von Einsiedel‘s documentary Virunga direct from YouTube:

From the forested depths of the African Congo, among the last of the mountain gorillas comes Virunga, an incredible true story of idealistic conservationists, armed militia, and the struggle to control Congo’s rich natural resources.  In the Virunga National Park, life flourishes with lush plant and wildlife — and it’s a battleground for rogue soldiers, opportunistic poachers, and a small band of embattled park rangers, the last line of defense to protect the heart and soul of the Eastern Congo. The documentary from director Orlando von Einsiedel details the brave people risking their lives to build a better future in a part of Africa long since forgotten and it hits limited theaters and the Netflix streaming service on November 7th, 2014.

Those poor gorillas. Sad to see people can't learn when it comes to rescuing these beautiful creatures.
