Our friend Hendri Coetzee tragically died this time last year while on expedition to kayak tributaries of the Congo river in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, one of last great unknowns on the planet. On Wednesday December 7th at 19.00, the Great Outdoors Dublin are hosting a film showing of the award winning film, Kadoma by Ben Stokesberry, a poignant account of Hendri's last expedition in the heart of Africa.
He was not just the greatest African explorer of his generation but a writer and philosopher on a constant quest to live the 'best day ever' and an inspiration to everyone he met.
On Hendri's final expedition, he takes us on a journey of mind and heart through parts of Africa seldom seen, where his own words will always ring true: "Some of the things that we're about to witness are so intense and horrible that they should stop the show," Hendri said, "but they don't. People still laugh and dance. Yes the bad things happen, but so do the good things, the amazing things, and the show goes on."
Numbers will be limited so be there early. Entry will be free but donations will be accepted on the night for the International Rescue Committee http://www.rescue.org/
