Ben Affleck: Gimme Shelter!

Ben Affleck speaks about the new short film he directed, Gimme Shelter, at the United Nations Headquarters on Wednesday (December 17) in New York City.

The four-minute documentary highlights humanitarian issues in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

“We made this film in order to focus attention on the humanitarian crisis in the DRC at a time when too much of the world is indifferent or looking the other way,” said Ben. “The suffering and loss we’ve all seen first-hand is staggering – it is beyond belief.”

He also poked fun at Angelina Jolie, UNHCR‘s most visible spokesperson: “UNHCR needs to find a Goodwill Ambassador who can get some sort of press attention.”
