A Continent on the Move
NAIROBI, Kenya, November 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Africa - dynamic, vibrant…the future! Africa is changing rapidly. High economic growth rates, immense natural and human resources, developments in communication and better and more accountable systems of government are transforming the continent.
The potential is huge. In the next 5 years, Africa's growth will outpace that of Asia's. 'A Continent on the Move,' is a ground-breaking documentary that looks at how trade takes place across the continent and what needs to be done to fulfill the potential.
Filmed in 11 different countries - Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Cameroon, Benin, Ghana, Togo, Zambia, Mozambique - the documentary examines the barriers to trade and the opportunities for business and investment across borders if these barriers can be removed.
Seen through the eyes of everyday traders, transporters, laborers and those who work at ports, manage customs and administer systems, the film is a portrait of what is happening on the ground in Africa today.
From the state of the art commodity exchange in Addis Ababa in Ethiopia, to the floating villages of Ganvie in Benin and the spectacular port of Beira in Mozambique, the film crisscrosses Africa to show how things are moving and taking shape.
Created by the award-winning production house Camerapix/A24 Media, and produced for the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, this 75-minute feature is beautifully filmed and scripted and provides stories and insights into trade and the movement of goods, services and people across the continent.
The hope and opportunities this presents for tackling poverty, driving growth and equitable development are captured in the film. As Africa gradually moves to the center stage this film will appeal to audiences across the continent and beyond, who all realize the immense value that the continent posses.
