After three decades as a writer/director/producer of documentary and fiction films around the world, I retired from as Chief of the MONUSCO Video Unit for the UN in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in July, 2012; my company, The Samba Project, LLC, is now developing two documentary features on the United Nations in the Congo. A demo for the first film A MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: THE UNITED NATIONS AND THE CONGO can be seen here on Vimeo. i have also been writing a Ph.d thesis titled DIGITAL DOCUMENTARY - THE REVOLUTION THAT IS NOT BEING TELEVISED.Samples of MONUSCO work I produced can be seen on www,YouTube.com/MONUCVIDEO, and the first chapters of my thesis can be seen on my blog : nationbuilding101.blogspot.com
I have always been a avid proponent of free expression, and I see the digital revolution as a unique opportunity for those who have been the subjects of many of our documentaries to tell their own stories to the world.
