A 15,000km submarine fiber optic cable brings high-speed Internet access to some of the most remote parts of Africa for the first time and suddenly catapults entire communities into the 21st century. The documentary Seacom examines this phenomenally transformative event. Weaving the personal stories of three individuals together with an historical overview of the evolution of fiber optic technology, the film investigates the growing divide between countries that have access to broadband and those that do not, and explores the unparalleled power of technology to reorder our world.
