I have been working on a travel series that aims to dispel the familiar image of war, poverty and terrorism when one imagines Africa.
‘You’re Going Where?’ is an inspiring travel series, highlighting epic landscapes and unforgettable cultures, to the often trying times that come with visiting unknown destinations. ‘You’re Going Where’ chronicles the positive side of regions and cultures unknown to the rest of the world. Africa has a familiar outward narrative when it comes to non-Africans, a narrative of poverty, famine, war and corruption. It’s an unjustified image that has unfortunately overshadowed the beauty of this continent, its epic landscapes and vibrant cultures. This documentary aims to counteract the negative image by highlighting the Africa you rarely see. The first season will highlight the cultures and landscapes of the Horn of Africa.
