SHOOTING WITH MURSI

This unique film tells the story of one of Africa's most isolated tribes – the Mursi – through the eyes of one of its members Olisarali Olibui, who carries in one hand a Kalashnikov and in the other, a camera.

 

A pastoralist tribe, living in an area of Ethiopia the size of Wales, the Mursi are surrounded by potential threats: 14 other tribes, national park proposals and the arrival of a new road bringing tourists.

 

The film provides a compelling and at times disturbing insight into everyday life of a people whose culture, in the words of Olisarali, faces extinction.
