MAG America Presents: Surviving the Peace: Angola

A documentary film depicting the interconnected stories of an eight-year-old landmine survivor, Minga d'Olinda, and a former soldier turned MAG deminer, Eron Pedro. Both Minga and Eron represent the plight of so many people in Angola who are still struggling landmines a decade after the civil war ended.

The film was shot on location in Angola during July 2012. MAG America's Marketing Manager accompanied filmmakers, Rick Gershon and Nathan Golon from MediaStorm, for the production and shooting of this film. As you will experience during the film, Angola is a beautiful country filled with heartbreak and redemption.
