Charlotte Metcalf is a leading British documentary film-maker. She has made controversial and often award-winning films on challenging topics in numerous countries, many of which were broadcast worldwide. The subjects of her films have ranged from drag queens to corporate criminals, from born-again Christians to prostitutes and drug addicts.
Politically too she has covered the spectrum, from party political broadcasts for Tony Blair, to Just William…and Ffion, the Channel 4 Hague profile which attracted so much attention.
Charlotte writes regularly for The Spectator and the national press but this, her first book, describes her formative years of film-making all over the African continent.
For over a decade Charlotte has directed and produced amazing films on Africa, but felt there was so much left unsaid. Her highly compelling personal journal takes us to the heart of this magical misunderstood continent.
