State of Mind: Healing Trauma

Dir. Djo Munga, 2010, 52 min.

Is healing possible for individuals living in a country where over 5 million people have died? Director Djo Munga takes this question on by following Dr. Albert Pesso, a psychotherapist who has traveled to Congo to train health care practitioners in his trademarked method for healing trauma. Munga obsersves Pesso's ambitious efforts with patience and honesty, delicately revealing the deep and complex roots of the challenge at hand.
