The Way of Water

Traveling through Africa for almost three years took Tomáš Vanourek and his Expedition Z101 to the most inhospitable places in the world. The deserted Sahara, the Nubian desert or the Sudd swamp. Together with his expedition special George, he traveled through the area of ​​the Great Rift Valley, the metropolis of Central Eastern Africa and famous national parks, where every step was accompanied by water as the essence of life. So how is it possible that we consider Africa to be a dry continent in which it is practically impossible to live? At the same time, one of the largest underground reservoirs of drinking water is located here and the axis of the road is the Nile, the longest river of this continent, and even in Sudan in the middle of the desert you can enjoy beer!
The short documentary captures the journey of water across Central East Africa and highlights some of the stereotypes traditionally associated with this part of the world. Without a doubt, there is no life without water. However, in almost three years of traveling through Africa, Tomáš did not come across a place where life would not thrive. So does this mean that there is a shortage of water or that we do not know how to handle it properly?
