I welcome Alexandre Brecher, who is an international communication expert, writer and documentary filmmaker. Alexandre was born in France in 1984. After graduating in communication and film studies in Paris, Alexandre embraced a career in international development, working with various UN agencies and NGOs in Central Asia, the Middle East, Africa and the Pacific. He spent three years in Cameroon, during which he shot 2 feature-length documentaries, "Message in a Bottle" (2018) and "The Explorer" (2020). He is also the author of numerous corporate films he produced for different UN agencies and international NGOs.
In the heart of the largely unexplored Congo Basin forest hides the Mokele-mbembe, a semi-aquatic animal whose shape and dimensions resemble those of a sauropod dinosaur. Do you disbelieve? 'You are wrong,' would say Michel Ballot, The Explorer, a former lawyer who left everything 15 years ago to try to find the animal. Put on the animal's trail by one of his trackers, Michel decides to set up his most ambitious expedition yet to finally bring tangible proof of the creature's existence.
