'Tanzania: A Journey Within'

TOH! has a trailer exclusive for new documentary "Tanzania: A Journey Within," which opens April 25 in New York in conjunction with World Malaria Day (and arrives May 2 in LA).

Directed by Emmy award-winning filmmaker Sylvia Caminer, the doc explores the journey of two friends -- one, a privileged American woman, and the other a Tanzanian scientist-philosopher as they travel across the African country of the title, with the goal of dedicating their time and efforts to malaria treatment and prevention.

A campaign is set up along with the release of the film, called "Buy a Ticket, Save a Life," with proceeds from each individual ticket sold going towards treatment of a child malaria patient in Africa.

Here's the official synopsis:

He's from a place so old it's been called the cradle of mankind. She's led a privileged life in America without hardship or pain. Together these two unlikely friends embark upon a journey from the heights of Mt. Kilimanjaro to the depths of an AIDS ravaged village where even the smallest children become outcasts at the mere hint of the disease and malaria is an ever-present threat. 
As Venance and Kristen experience the ancient culture, heart-breaking poverty, and eternal spirituality of Venance's motherland, the ability of the Tanzanian people to love, dream, and persevere in the face of overwhelming hardship triggers a life-changing transformation in Kristen -- one that brings her face to face with her own mortality and will ultimately cause thousands of lives to be saved. "Tanzania: A Journey Within" is a dramatic, emotional, and visually stunning odyssey that will challenge and inspire you.

Kristen's trip, and bout with Malaria there, inspired her to create Malaika For Life – a business which sells bracelets made by Tanzanian women.
