"Absolutely fantastic!" - CNN's Isha Sesay





WHAT ARE WE DOING HERE? is a documentary film that explores why the charity given to Africa over the last five decades has been largely ineffective and at times harmful.  The film tells the story of Brandon, Nicholas, Daniel and Tim Klein who travel from Cairo to Cape Town in an attempt to understand one of the paramount problems of our time; the failure to end poverty.
