'We wanted to walk the real Africa, beyond clichés of cheetahs at sunset, and colourful marketplaces where you taste strange foods to make people laugh. What we found out is more subtle and sensitive...' The Poussins are amazingly adventurous travellers who decided, starting symbolically on 1 January 2001, to retrace the path of early humankind by walking the entire continent of Africa from the Cape of Good Hope to Israel. Reliant not on sponsorship but on the goodwill of Africans, their epic journey has already spawned three books and a twelve-episode television series. Finally making this movie in English has enabled them to revisit where it began, and the friends they made nearly a decade ago.

Thanks to the Directors
