Movie on UNDP activites in Liberia

There is a new documentary out on UNDP activities in Liberia (focusing on Lofa County). It gives a general overview on the Peacebuilding process in Liberia and portrays an innovatice approach of disarmement where communities that joined the program were given a project of their own choice (they usually chose health facilities, road reconstruction and re-building of town hall). Still beware, the movie is UNDP PR :-)
