'Kwando': National Geographic's film about the Okavango basin premieres this Tuesday in the country

The film 'Kwando', from National Geographic's Okavango Wildlife Project, will premiere this Tuesday, May 10, in the country. The premiere will take place at the National Archives, in Luanda.


This production, which is a sequel to the film "Into the Okavango", addresses the importance of preserving the edges of the Okavango Delta.

The 45-minute documentary, directed by Kaya Ensor, portrays the story of a young Angolan fisherman, Elias Ngunga, who joins a team of international scientists to explore one of the country's rivers, the Kwando.

Between obstacles, scientific discoveries and his interest in birds, the young man finds hope for a new future for his land, which involves protecting that landscape.

Kerllen Costa, director of the project for Angola, quoted by Platinaline, said that "to protect the Okavango Delta", that is, wildlife, people and ancient cultures, it is necessary "to start with its rivers of origin in Angola" .

"It is an honor to share this uniquely Angolan story with local communities and the world," he added.

He also indicated that the expedition team's research "has shown that these ecosystems are healthy and full of biodiversity, and Kaya Ensor's visionary narrative brings that to life", adding that the film 'Kwando' "is also a story of human ingenuity and cultural pride", hoping "that spectators will be inspired by Elias' determination to preserve this natural paradise in Angola", writes Platinaline.

Alongside its screening in Angola, the film was also selected for the Riviera (Italy) and Freiburg (Switzerland) International Film Festivals.

The film is part of the conservation action of the National Geographic Okavango Wildlife Project in collaboration with the Wild Bird Trust, which aims to ensure the permanent preservation of the Cubango-Okavango Basin, through the collection of scientific data and the involvement of communities.
