Synopsis

Quotes

“Showcasing the best and the worst in human nature, von Einsiedel's VIRUNGA wrenches a startlingly lucid narrative from a sickening web of bribery, corruption and violence.”—NEW YORK TIMES, CRITIC'S PICK

“Urgent investigative report and unforgettable drama, VIRUNGA is a work of heart”—wrenching tenderness and heart-stopping suspense.”— LA TIMES

“Extraordinary...enough action, pathos, suspense, venal villains, stalwart heroes and endangered gorillas for a dozen fiction films”— VARIETY
