This is one of the well filmed documentaries on Africa, this time is the Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. It was created by David Breashears, creator of the acclaimed IMAX film EVEREST. The following reviewers from IMDB (www.imdb.com) have the following to say on this film:
"Kilimanjaro is called the largest mountain, not the highest of course, but rising from the plains and rain forests which surround it this ancient volcano is huge. Even local Tanzanians only know it from afar but few ever get near its glaciers and its summit.
The team that made this film wanted to make it identifiable by the viewing audience. So the expedition featured 6 hikers not much different from most of us, including an older woman, a 12-year-old girl from the USA, and a 12-year-old local boy who had never touched snow.
The trek takes a week, and takes them from muddy rainforest to almost 20,000 feet. As they say in the film, it is like going from the Amazon to Antarctica.
I am among those not acquainted with Kilimanjaro. For those of us who don't have the time and wealth to explore such places, this IMAX film is superb. " ..by TxMike, IMDB user
'The movie, Kilimanjaro: To the Roof of Africa, was excellent. Not only was the content of the movie intriguing and interesting, but seeing it on the giant screen transported you out of your seat and onto the mountain. I would recommend this to anyone looking to explore the terrain of a beautiful country, while sitting in the comfort of a movie theater. "..by EL, IMDB user
