Shooting With Mursi

Possibly the most isolated tribe in Africa, the Mursi of SW Ethiopia face loss of access to their lands and thus of their culture and livelihood. Faced with encroachment from nearby park reserves and tourists, the tribe comes face to face with possible extinction of its way of life. A gifted tribal member, armed with his own video camera, sets out on a journey to document ancient inter-tribal rivalries and outside development which threaten their community. The film asks “Can an environmental tourism co-exist with preservation of indigenous peoples?”
