TANZANIA a Friendship JourneyChanging the world one friendship at a time TANZANIA a Friendship Journey is a new feature-length documentary shot throughout Tanzania from the cities of Dar es Salaam and Mwanza, to the summit of mighty Mount Kilimanjaro in sub-zero temperatures, to the sweltering plains of the Serengeti, to the impoverished village of Nkwenda. The film captures Venance Ndibalema's journey home after his pursuit of a higher education in the States. He returns nine years later to his homeland with one of his closest American friends, Kristen Kenney. Venance introduces Kristen to the ancient culture, the contemporary poverty, and the eternal spirituality of his motherland. We watch Venance as he struggles to blend his newly learned western philosophy with that of tribal life; at the same time Kristen experiences a life-changing transformation by observing first-hand the daily struggle to survive for many living on the continent. It is a dramatic, emotional, visually stunning odyssey that challenges and changes our protagonists forever.
