Burmese Dinner + Congo Documentary

Join Nature Lovers for an evening featuring my favorite restaurant in Silver Spring and a fabulous local film festival, AFI Silverdocs.

Meet in front of Mandalay Restaurant by 7:25 p.m.  After dinner, we'll head over to AFI for Virunga at 9 p.m.

Africa's oldest national park containing the last natural habitat for endangered mountain gorillas exists in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. As civil unrest grows within the DRC, a British oil company pursues efforts to drill in this UNESCO world heritage site. A small number of park rangers and a determined journalist fight to secure the park's borders from poachers and businessmen alike. VIRUNGA shockingly exposes blatant corruption, highlighting the political and environmental crisis in the Congo. – SB

Notes:

Feel free to come to either dinner or the film only. 

I recommend purchasing tickets for the film ahead of time.
