    • Synopsis
    • Elizabeth L. Gilbert began her career as a war photographer in the 1990’s, covering some of the most tragic events in human history such as the Rwandan genocide and civil war in Somalia. After years of conflict, a disillusioned Gilbert set out to point her cameras at the disappearing vestiges of traditional Africa. She succeeded at capturing some of the very last photographs of a vanishing world.
      One decade and two books later, Gilbert has assembled an unlikely team of safari first-timers to accompany her return as she brings them her books and presents cinema slide shows to the most remote villages in Kenya. For most audiences, this will be the first time to see a cinema projection as well as photographs of themselves and their sacred ceremonies. Together, she and the crew learn some hard lessons about a rapidly changing Africa.
