Many nature documentaries make the mistake of ignoring the villagers who live in Africa and navigate the dangers and costs of coexisting with wildlife. Two of the world's oldest cattle-cultures--the Masai and the Himba--have actually suffered from the conservation efforts imposed on them by whites. This Kartemquin film looks at how some villagers have embraced eco-tourism, which focuses on community-based conservation that balances the needs of the people with that of the wildlife. In Masai, Ojihimba, and English with English Subtitles.
