Before there was the African Queen,
before there was the East River Ferry and
the NYC Ferry plan, there was Liemba!

A ferry connecting communities and people
with work on the great Lake Tanganyika.

Come see this warming and entertaining documentary
about the 100-year-old vessel; its history,
interviews with the people who run and use it;
and hear the marvelous sound track
of East Africa music.


Special Guest Speakers

James Wong,
Director of Ferries, NYC Economic Development Corp.

Rick Spilman,
Nautical novelist and founder of the Old Salt Blog
