The Victoria Falls is a waterfall in southern Africa on the boarder of Zamia and Zimbabwe. The title of the documentary is an allusion to the African name of the falls: Mosi-oa-Tunya which means the smoke that thunders. The Falls are 355 ft high and are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. They were named in honour of Queen Victoria.
The documentary is narrated by a native man who lives in a small village. He guides the viewer through the documentary and tells stories of the animals which live near the falls and the “secrets of the mist”. The unusual but authentic narrator lets the viewer immerse into the magical story.
