Synopsis: In October 2012, South Africa Scuba Instructor DaveChamberlain set off on a 2700 km run from Walvis Bay, Namibia to Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Photographer Morgan Cardiff accompanied Dave on the first 4 weeks of the run.

What he witnessed was one individuals seemingly domination of what many would consider a feat far to great to achieve. Battling 46-degree temperatures, isolation, a lack of water and no respite from the beating summer sun, Dave covered distances of up to 85km daily.

The run was to promote the plight of the African Penguin. How difficult it is promoting a penguin in the middle of the oldest desert on earth he was asked ‘quite’ was his reply. The film is a celebration of nature, adventure and one individuals quest to encourage people out of their comfort zone and think about the world around them.

Director's Statement

It was an absolute pleasure to spend 5 weeks in the Namibian desert with Dave Chamberlain, his daily feats while humble in intention were nothing short of remarkable. I hope this is the first of many projects together.
