To understand a bit better what motivated me to take on such a project, here's how it all started:

 

"Often when I meet people and they ask me about my origines, I end up waiting quite a while before anyone mentions Guinea-Conakry. Guinea isn't the country people think of right away. It actually is one of the 25 countries the least visited in the world. And yet, the country holds enormous cultural and natural diversity. The capital is dynamic and multicultural and is evolving before our eyes!

 

"When I used to go to Guinea, it was always to see family and so it wasn't until last December that I was really able to discover this West African capital. Quite pleasantly surprised by the dynamic city, I fell under the charm of Conakry. I discovered a vibrant city, full of life!

 

"From this moment on, my mission was no longer just to discover the curious and trendy spots of the city, but also to show off this positive image of the country.

 

"So, in January 2016, I launched the Facebook page and short video, Welcome to Conakry which has racked up over 75,000 views on social networks!"

 

 

 

 

After that, I also had the chance to organize a conference with the youth of Conakry on "How to Export the Image of Conakry to the World."

It was at this moment that I had the idea to create a documentary series that told of the Conakry of today.
