Description

Best Feature, Llanberis Mountain Film Festival

Runner Up, Sheffield Adventure Film Festival

Mazungu is a film about a five-month solo attempt to make a first descent of the 2,922-mile-long mighty Congo River in a Canadian canoe. The Congo in Central Africa is the eighth longest river in the world with a flow rate second only to the Amazon. Due to generations of political instability, foreign exploitation, corruption and civil war, not to mention the crocodiles, hippos and huge whitewater rapids, the Congo River had never been paddled before from the true source in Zambia to the Atlantic Ocean. The filmmaker faced thick swamp, huge rapids and crocodiles; was chased, bullied and threatened; and was stricken with malaria. With footage of previously unexplored and unseen areas of the upper Congo River, it gives a unique insight into this fascinating and rarely visited area.
