A group of five adventurers decided to ride across the whole African continent on the famous but very old Jawa Pionyr motorcycles. They spent five months in the seats of probably the least comfortable vehicles and rode almost 10,000 miles from central Europe to the southernmost point of Africa. The documentary is a mosaic of the most interesting parts of their journey, from the white beaches to the endless deserts, to the unimaginable poverty of African slums.

Marek Slobodník

The Slovak traveller, adventurer, and staunch motorcycle enthusiast made his first journey in 2010 – to the Aral Lake in Kazakhstan. He edited the travel footage into a short documentary and won an award for the best motorcycling film. In the last five years, he has participated in five expeditions of the famous yellow Trabant cars, which resulted in three already iconic documentaries.
