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 a 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.
