Pre-film reception at 6:00pm

Post-film Q&A with producer Kathy Eldon

THE JOURNEY IS THE DESTINATION is inspired by the true story of Dan Eldon, a charismatic young artist, explorer and photojournalist, who led a group of unlikely teens on a safari across Africa to deliver aid to a refugee camp in Malawi in 1990. The film follows Dan as he then finds himself covering a famine and spiraling civil war in Somalia as Reuters youngest photojournalist in history. Although set in the early 1990s, the film highlights contemporary issues surrounding refugees caught in conflict zones, the radicalization of youth, the role of journalists, and how passionate young people can make a difference in the world. Ultimately, THE JOURNEY IS THE DESTINATION celebrates the vibrant and fulfilling life that is possible when we commit to live, not only for ourselves, but also for others.
