In the Land of Ou Makai  is the first Bushman account of an astounding history of persecution and survival that has only been known from German colonial archives until now.

The film explores the Bushman heritage in the Kgalagadi wilderness through the narratives of Bushman traditional leader Dawid Kruiper, 76, his brother Buks, 72, a master tracker and traditional healer, and their families.

NOT TO BE MISSED!
