Synopsis

Ten years in the making, Jan Svatoš' documentary tells the forgotten story of American film pioneers Martin and Osa Johnson. Where others would have given up, the Johnsons risked their lives provide evidence about the disappearing African wilderness. Martin and Osa's work used to captivate not only the public, but also Hemingway, Chaplin, and the Queen of England. For the first time, this film presents unique archive footage from the 1920s and 1930s and sets them in the context of Africa today.
