Summary
What is left of Africa's hunter-gatherers, and do they have a future? This program enters the lives of the San bushmen of the Kalahari and the Hadzabe people of Tanzania in a way that may soon become impossible. Examining their crafts and customs, the film studies intriguing methods of making fire, cooking, building huts, and crafting jewelry. Viewers will witness detailed preparations for a hunt, including close-ups of poison carefully applied to arrow-tips, as well as documentation of the expedition as it unfolds. The San and Hadzabe languages, with their fascinating variety of phonetic clicks, are recorded throughout. Archival footage and views of ancient rock art reinforce the history and prehistory of these vanishing societies
