My Father, My Son and Kilimanjaro

An Adventurous Journey
The thirst for adventure and Achill Moser go hand in hand, but what was the catalyst behind his fascination with far-flung places? This becomes clear to him when he meets his biological father Harry at the age of twenty-eight: Harry’s lifelong dream had been to climb Kilimanjaro. Together the father and son set off for the Masai Mara’s holy mountain. However, Achill suffers a cruciate ligament rupture, thus his father has to climb alone. After his father’s death, Achill discovers a cassette with his father’s record of his trip to East Africa. Ten years later, Achill and his son Aaron set off for Tanzania with this recording packed along. Accompanied by Masai nomads, they ultimately reach the white roof of Africa, the summit of Kilimanjaro.
An unforgettable trip to the human race’s roots, a convergence with a father who was not there for many years, and a moving account of how much the connection between a father and a son can be strengthened when a joint adventure is undertaken.
