We are seeking North America based scholars or professionals who will write and submit a documentary film review either to an academic or professional journal (print or online), an association newsletter or website, or an e-mail listserv. Prospective reviewers should first contact the editor of an appropriate publication or other outlet to confirm that they will consider publication of your film review. Once you have secured a review assignment, you may then contact me off-list at Sylvia@IcarusFilms.com to obtain a preview copy of STATE OF MIND: HEALING TRAUMA
In war torn countries people will struggle to be productive and development will fail until they overcome their trauma. Yet, is it even possible for a country overwhelmed by five million deaths, like Congo, to successfully move on?
That is the underlying question in Congolese documentary filmmaker Djo Munga's STATE OF MIND, in which psychotherapist Albert Pesso is invited to Kinshasa, to train health care workers, many who are also survivers of terrible violence themselves.
Capturing the sessions in fly-on-the-wall scenes, and with candid interviews to put the effort in a larger context, STATE OF MIND is a layered and engrossing look at a national collective trauma, and one initiative to try and heal wounds.
For the official website to the film please see: http://icarusfilms.com/new2010/som.html
We look forward to hearing of your interest in STATE OF MIND: HEALING TRAUMA.
