    • Synopsis
    • Angono Mba, an octogenarian Guinean native recalls from his living room, his experiences as a porter for the Spanish filmmaker Manuel Hernández Sanjuán during a two-year documentary expedition (1944 to 1946) across colonial Africa, looking for a mysterious lake where a legend says 10.000 elephants live together.
      ”Un día vi 10.000 elefantes” tells the story of the obsession of the filmmaker and the special relationship between the two men, their different ways of relating to everything that happens during the expedition and the contradictory forms of expressing their feelings. It is a history of fascination for Africa, the past and collective memories.
