by Anna and Tom Davies (2016/ 97 min)

In 2013, Filmmakers Anna and Tom Davies set off on a round-the-world journey, meeting and connecting with different people from different backgrounds and collating their stories. Each person interviewed shared who they are, what they’d experienced, their ideas on love and freedom and lessons they’ve learnt.

The documentary is a compilation of these stories and insights. An opportunity to learn, appreciate, connect and care about people living in our global community.

The Ubuntu Project aims to promote a sense of unity and respect and highlight that, despite our differences, we are all part of the same human race.
