In this film, director Jan Svatoš presents a forgotten story of Martin and Osa Johnson who were pioneers of the wildlife documentary genre. They went to shoot films in Africa in the time when it was more dangerous than just encountering wild animals or malaria. They were risking their lives while trying to catch the wilderness that was disappearing. The movie is a result of 10 years long research Jan Svatoš has done in film archives, incl. the Library of Congress.

A discussion with the director of the movie Jan Svatoš will follow the screening. Film will be in Czech with English subtitles, 90 mins. Discussion will be in Czech.
