FREDERICK, Md. (PRWEB) October 18, 2018
On Friday, October 19th at 7:00 AM, a new documentary called Triumph Over Adversity in Africa: The Story of Equatorial Guinea airs on the History Channel. Its release commemorates the 50th anniversary of Equatorial Guinea’s independence from Spain, and the documentary shares the little-known story of the rollercoaster journey Equatorial Guinea took to become the stable African nation it is today. Digital Bard, a video production and promotion company in Frederick, Md, recently completed production on the documentary in partnership with East West Communications.
Nestled along the west coast of Africa, Equatorial Guinea is a small, Spanish-speaking country that seized its independence from Spain’s colonial rule in 1968. It was not easy transition, and the documentary details the attempted coups, oppression and genocide, and economic disasters that ultimately ended in the nation’s recovery and path to success when oil and gas were discovered offshore in the 1990s. Today, Equatorial Guinea enjoys a high standard of living and plays a vital role in regional and continental affairs.
Two local videographers spent 10 days in Equatorial Guinea for production in 2017, capturing hours of film footage and interviews. Post-production editing took producers six months and over 100 hours to complete the documentary, which incorporates rare, archival, historical footage.
The one-hour documentary will air on the History Channel in English, but it is also translated into Spanish and French on the 5,000 copies of BluRay discs that the government of Equatorial Guinea will release.
