AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In this documentary, Tom Keneally re-traces the journey he made two years earlier, when researching the novel Towards Asmara. Keneally reveals a remarkable society of camouflaged schools and hospitals, factories hidden in deep caves, great food distribution dumps, and ravaged biblical towns. He encounters again the real people he turned into fictional characters in his book.
