The Journey is the Destination - Dan Eldon

The Journey is the Destination is inspired by the true story of International School of Kenya Alumnus Dan Eldon, a charismatic young activist, artist, photographer and adventurer. By the age of 22, Dan had traveled to 42 countries, created a series of fine art journals that would become international best sellers, worked in refugee camps, opened a business, became the youngest staff photojournalist at Reuters, fell in love, and accumulated more life experience than most in a lifetime.

Visually stunning and wildly inspiring, The Journey is the Destination follows a young man’s tumultuous coming of age, his exploration of love and his struggle to create positive change in an increasingly violent and dangerous world. Dan was a unique person who woke up every day with the drive to make the world a little better before he went to sleep. An artist, Dan kept vibrant journals of his photographs and paintings, a witty commentary on the world around him. His first journal was inspired by an International School of Kenya Intercultural trip that he took to the Loita Hills in 1985.

Now a major Hollywood film has been made about him. We are proud to show it for the first time anywhere in Africa.

Over 550 guests joined us on Friday, May 12 to visit Service Banda stations showcasing our student community outreach efforts in the 2016/17 school year. Dan Eldon was an activist and believed that you can make a difference in this world, no matter how young you are. ISK students feel the same way! The Service Banda stations were followed by the movie screening of The Journey is the Destination at 6:45pm

Jeffrey Gettleman, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of the upcoming memoir Love, Africa, introduced the film.
