Shooting With Mursi
Year:  2009
Running Time:  55 minutes

Venue:  Bay Model, Sausalito
Showtime:   Thursday, April 14, 2011 @ 05:15 PM

Description:
  The Mursi are an Ethiopian tribe of fewer than nine thousand people, a nomadic group of pastoralists who live in an area of the Omo valley the size of Wales.

In 2000 Olisarali Olibui, a member of one of Africa's most isolated tribes went to Australia where he learned English and returned with a video camera, a laptop and a solar charger. He decided to use the kit to portray his people’s lifestyle and culture and to give them a voice. And the Mursi certainly have a voice.

When Olisarali interviews his people on camera they feel constrained by no inhibition, shyness or reticence. They open up freely to one of their own and the subtitled translations of their comments are well observed and frequently hilarious.
