Why the Congo?
I was invited to go to the Congo by the Congo Nation of Ball to do a documentary to promote sports and to basically show the Congo in a more positive light then is normally conveyed. The Congo immediately conjures up a lot of feelings and almost a preconceived perception of what you are about to experience. I can now confirm that it’s not what you think…
Did you yourself have preconceived notions before you went?
Well, I wasn’t expecting such a busy metropolis, and of course my mind was on the not-too-distant war.
