(about filming "The Constant Gardener" in Africa)
Rachel: Africa changed everybody. Not just me, but every single member of the crew was deeply affected by what we saw. We saw a level of poverty that I don't think anyone had seen before. There's a million people living in a very small space. No running water. No sanitation. No electricity and a very high level of disease. Yet these people's spirit was so powerful and warm and generous and hospitable and they welcomed us. There's a scene in the movie where the children all say, "How are you? How are you?" That's really what happened. That wasn't in the script.
