The MV Liemba is many things: a physical relic of European colonialism; a vital lifeline of trade for otherwise isolated communities; a meeting place where Africans from all walks of life come together a floating microcosm of the continent and the primary means of travel. For nearly a century, the ship has served as a critical avenue of commerce for soldiers, missionaries, traders and immigrants on Lake Tanganyika the geographical link between east, central and southern Africa. Featuring an entirely original, locally recorded soundtrack, this documentary brings the MV Liemba's colorful history to life and celebrates her role in Africa. Through compelling passenger narratives and breathtaking footage from Academy Award winner TJ Martin this documentary takes audience on a present day journey through the heart of Africa on the oldest operational passenger ship in the world. -from Amazon
