Voice of Maasai short film provides an intimate look at one of the world’s most majestic and controversial landscapes by the people who call it home. By shining a light on everyday life of the Maasai, this documentary sets out to help share their critical voice of livelihood in the Savannah's of East Africa.
Hustle and Heart (1:52) Nemaa Koshuma, a modern day warrior and lead vocalist for Voice of Maasai, returns home from his job at a luxury lodge where he works as a mechanic to bring the gift of communication to his family. Taking destiny into his own hands, Nemaa keeps an eye on the future for his people.
Goat Slaughter (6:33) Nemaa and tribesmen walk us through field dressing a goat, sustenance of the Maasai diet. Yes, you see the slaughter and there is blood, this is where the meat comes from.
Earth Family (10:25) A life cycle in rhythm with nature is how the Maasai family survives. This dialogue-free short paces through a typical early day with Nemaa's family in the village portraying why no one cares more about protecting the grasslands in Africa than the Maasai, a culture relying on mother earth for sustenance and survival of their cattle.
We would like to thank family, friends, backers and support; without you, this work would not exist. Special thanks to my team and ever-evolving network in Tanzania, together we are making the world a richer place. Please continue to share with friends and family as we need patron support to keep moving forward.
