'Africa: Open for Business'

Carol Pineau's film- Africa: Open for business, is one the many films shown at this year's Cannes Film Festival. Perhaps it is one of the few outstanding one. This documentary profiles ten businesses throughout Africa- ranging from a tiny cafe in Kampala, to a major flower exporter in Kenya, who every night sends a 747 cargo jet fullof produce and flowers to the UK market.

This film is a true story based on the situation on ground. I have watched a clip of the documentary, and it is really inspiring! You may also listen to a MPR audio interview of Carol. Great lady, great story!
