Cinema for Peace

Our founder, Noëlla continues to be a fierce activist, representing Malaika and the DRC wherever she goes.

In January, Noella was the host of the Cinema for Peace 2013 event in Los Angeles. The aim of the Cinema for Peace Foundation is to highlight and support film projects which center on humanitarian and justice issues. She proudly represented the DRC and advocated for peace within the country.

Ben Affleck was presented with an award for his work in the DRC.

Noëlla surprised actress Thandie Newton, an avid supporter of the Congo, by inviting her on stage.

Some of the other attendees included Cindy McCain, Luis Moreno Ocampo, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Alfre Woodard, Kristen Bell, and Dax Shepard. Maisha Soul, an artist from Goma, finished the night with a fantastic live performance.
