Maasai: Birds Sing and Lions Roar is the final in a series of six film essays of Maasai life. These remarkable films, in which the Maasai describe their culture and the ways in which a rapidly changing world continues to impact their way of life, bring the viewer close to an extraordinary and semi-nomadic Indigenous world.
Birds Sing and Lions Roar explores the relationship between the Maasai and the environment. As the drought deepens the men travel further and further in search of pastures.
Dependent on their cattle and goats for survival, like all Indigenous people, Maasai are in the front line when it comes to the consequences of climate change. This time the rains come and we make a dash to cross the rapidly rising rivers and we meet a group of Maasai warriors.
The Maasai films in this series are:
- Women at Work and Women at Home
- Enkang Life
- Changing Times
- Food and Celebration
- Keeping Knowledge
- Birds Sing and Lions Roar
