Gabriel and The Mountain

One man’s journey through Africa with a backpack full of dreams and a quixotic mission to climb Mount Kilimanjaro.


‘A moving look at the transformative nature of travel, both on those hopping around the world in search of a new perspective and those they encounter along the way.’

- Screen International

One man’s journey through Africa with a backpack full of dreams and a quixotic mission to climb Mount Kilimanjaro.

When we meet headstrong but likeable Brazilian traveller Gabriel Buchmann in Kenya, he’s happy, travelling well and leaving nothing behind but solid friendships. But when he’s joined by girlfriend Cristina in Malawi, he begins to take risks. This Cannes prize-winning true story is a rich and distinctive study of character and place. It features Gabriel’s real-life African friends reprising their encounters with him.
