Seems Angelina is not the only do-gooder in Tinseltown. US actor Ben Affleck and Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger teamed up to create a film they hope will raise awareness about refugees hit by the conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The 23-minute film, Gimme Shelter, is directed by Affleck and features the Stones' hit, taken from their 1969 album "Let it Bleed,".

The film features footage shot in the strife-torn eastern region of Nord-Kivu, where a quarter-million people have been forced to flee their homes since fighting between rebels and government forces flared up in August.

This picture shows Ben with an unidentified person during his visit on November 17, 2008 at Nakivale Refugee Settlement located in South Western Uganda. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
