Milking the Rhino
David E. Simpson, Director
The Maasai tribe of Kenya and Namibia’s Himba—two of Earth’s oldest cattle cultures—are in the midst of upheaval. Emerging from a century of “white man conservation” that turned their land into game reserves and fueled resentment towards wildlife, they are now vying for a piece of the wildlife-tourism pie. Charting the collision of ancient ways and Western expectations, Milking the Rhino tells intimate, hopeful, and heartbreaking stories of people facing deep cultural change.
(85 mins., 2009, unrated documentary)
On Screen/In Person is made possible with support from the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts Regional Touring Program.
