Hadza, The: Last of the First

Synopsis
One of the last true hunter-gatherer tribes, the East African Hadza are fighting to maintain their sustainable lifestyle. They have lived on their land near the Rift Valley in Tanzania for over 50,000 years. Like other indigenous peoples around the globe, the Hadza now face grave challenges to their way of life. This film is a call to action to guarantee a land corridor for their survival. The film follows the Hadza as they are caught between traditions and modern ways of life, uncovering a clash of cultures that could mean the loss of a vital connection with the past.
