The film:

A documentary film shot during a navigation of the Nile river and in the surrounding woods. Elephant, turtles, buffalos, giraffes, snakes and lions live in the lush vegetation. The light filters through the ancient trees and frightful crocodiles swim in the river, while the local tribes chase the wild beasts. The travelers hunt crowned cranes. The film ends with the shootings of an evocative sunset. 


The film restoration:

The film was preserved by the Museo Nazionale del Cinema di Torino from a tinted and toned nitrate print (121 meter long) held by the Museo.

The preservation work was carried out in 2012 by L’Immagine Ritrovata laboratory in Bologna.
