Kalahari Struggle - Southern Africa's San under Pressure
Verlorenes Land - Die politische Tragödie der Buschmänner
The San, the inhabitants of the Kalahari, achieved world fame through the film «The Gods Must be Crazy». The then very one-sided representation of the San as simple Bushmen has absolutely nothing to do with the social reality. The San possess valuable skills and knowledge about the natural world. During the entire last millennium their story was one of subjugation, dispossession and exploitation. Even today the San are fighting huge existential and social problems and most of them live miserable lives. The film documents their legal and political fight for a minimum amount of self-determination.
