Africa is an amazing continent. From its start as the hearth of humanity, it is now home to more than a billion people. It has jungles and desert and everything in between, even a glacier. It covers all four hemispheres. It is a continent of 54 diverse countries that is both deeply troubled and profoundly uplifting. It’s very young, over half the continent is under the age of 25. It is a place of superlatives.
Benjamin Dowie took a trip to Uganda and Tanzania with two of his siblings to visit his sister who was volunteering at the time there in March 2013.
The resulting short film was awarded the BEST NON-NARRATIVE & BEST EDITING at the South Australian Screen Awards 2014.
Enjoy the virtual trip to Africa!
