One Day I Saw 10,000 Elephants

Angono Mba, an 80 year-old Guniean, recalls the expedition when he worked as porter for the filmmaker Hernandez Sanjuan, traveling around Spanish Guinea from 1944 to 1946, in search of a mysterious lake where, legend would have it, you could see 10,000 elephants. From the Spanish filmmaker’s obsession with finding something, to the actual adventures of the expedition, comes this tale of fascination with Africa, the past, and memory.
