'This Is Congo' by Daniel McCabe

 

“Dan McCabe and I first met online, as I was finishing a long run in Congo and heading for South Sudan. I was able to pass on my contacts to Dan and, over the next number of years, he produced a moving and visually stunning film, 'This is Congo', which truly captures the essence of what I experienced there. We finally met in person a couple of years later, in New York City, and quickly developed a meaningful friendship. Fast forward to 2014, and on Dan's invitation, I visited the small town of Hudson, NY, and decided to stay. Local creatives like Dan have made my "re-integration" into Western "civilization" possible. Here he shares some thoughts about his film.” —Tim Freccia
