Arriving in Africa, the plane lands at night. As you step outside, you’re enveloped in the damp heat, setting off into a night of car horns, dust, and headlights. To get your bearings, you impatiently wait for the morning, when the sun rises and you can finally discover the city.
The director brings us along on his journey, starting in Ouagadougou and heading west to Conakry, a trip of over 2,000 kilometers (over 1,200 miles)—discovering an Africa of possibilities.
About Mythical Roads:
Whether remote or packed with tourists, recent or old, famous or forgotten, certain routes are paved with legends. This series explores itineraries that have made history across five continents—some roads and rivers that separated countries, and others that formed links, creating pathways for traders, fortune-seekers, evangelists, conquerors, and travelers. As historical symbols, these routes now ignite the imaginations of millions of people in search of adventure and freedom.
The original and poetic approach of this series casts a new light on these mythical roads. Throughout the journey, the routes unfold through the eyes of the men and women who live and work along them, and who continue to sustain the legends.
Personal adventures alternate with extraordinary explorations, unforgettable encounters, and surprising developments.
