Description:
"Song After Sorrow" (1938) was a dramatized documentary of the Presbyterian Church in the U.S. Congo Mission work among lepers at Bibanga. Virginia and Ray Garner, of the Africa Motion Picture Project, arrived at Bibanga in late 1938 just as Eugene Kellersberger was preparing to relocate the mission's leprosarium. A portion of the film depicts, as Virginia wrote in her diary of August 23, 1938, "homeless lepers en route [...] The ones without feet rode in carts, the women carried baskets on their heads, and the crippled hobbled along with sticks. It really was quite a scene and should be very effective." [Cf. Glenn Reynolds, "Images out of Africa : the Virginia Garner diaries of the Africa Motion Picture Project," 2011.] This is a 1990s transfer to VHS, likely provided to PHS-Montreat by the Medical Benevolence Foundation.
