From acclaimed director / writer Bronwen Hughes (Stander, Forces of Nature) comes a true story of relentless passion; the story of the life of Dan Eldon, photographer, creative, artist, and activist. Choosing to forgo traditional studies – and a calmer life in London – Dan Eldon chases his calling to be an activist and photojournalist, risking his life to find the simple truths and joy of humanity as he documents a war-torn, famine-rife Africa.
Crafting a visually dazzling film from Eldon's incredible journals Hughes brings forth the emotional heartache of one man's pursuit of what he believes is his right path. Uplifting and emotionally powerful The Journey Is The Destination is a film about living life and making a difference in this world.
