excerpt

A film about the music dance and spirit possession practices of the Ojtiherero language-speaking groups of north-western Namibia and south-western Angola. They are the Ovahimba, Ovadhimba, Ovahakaona, Ovakuvale, Ovatjimba... They are different but share a common culture and belief systems. The film explores the various ways in which music and dance transcend their everyday lives from infancy to death.
