Ark of Lights and Shadows

Jan Svatos | Czech Republic | 2018 | 90 min

They met on Friday, getting married secretly on Sunday. They had to run away from home due to their parents’ wrath, so they rather spent their honeymoon among the cannibals in the South Seas. There they lost their illusions, camera and almost their lives. At the moment when many people would have abandoned filming, Martin and Osa Johnson risked their lives to give the testimony of diminishing wildlife. The film is an authentic footprint of era when filming in Africa itself was more dangerous than lions or malaria. Although they were celebrities admired by Ch. Chaplin or British Royal Family, they are forgotten nowadays. This feature documentary discovers the work and legacy of these outstanding pioneer filmmakers in Africa for the first time in a new perspective.
