"Nowhere in Africa"
Peter Herrmann (Producer)

"Kenya and movies are synonimous and have a shared history. Hollywood shot classics in Kenya, such as "The Snows of Kilimajaro", "Mogambo", "Hatari" and "Out of Africa", always expensive but also very, very successful.
My secret weapon was Jenny Pont, our Kenyan Production Coordinator. Since my first arrival she did almost everything to convince me , Caroline and Gernot that the film had to be made in Kenya.
She found our excellent professional crew, and had for every and any problem a solution, or knew somebody to assist and help us.
She convinced me not to go to South.Africa.
Also, we saw the film " I Dreamed of Africa " and saw Pokot tribespeople portrayed by Zulu's, unpleasant as it was ethnologically impossible.
During a party organized for us by our drivers and crew around a campfire in the bush, I told them that I was extremely surprised to see such a professionalism in Kenya. They showed me their country, and convinced me that one can make a major film in Kenya. I would be very happy to find such a team anywhere in the world."
