Director Robert Collins tries to reflect the dangers faced by the communities living in remote areas in Africa, especially those of marginalized communities living in rural areas, faced with the threat of being attacked by natural predators. Collins reveals the plight of Mr Casey’s family, trying to avoid being attacked by a pride of lions, and trying to save themselves from a sticky end. But the problems revealed by the characters in Savage Harvest are nothing compared to the realities faced by the Maasai community living in Kanjiro, around Ngorongoro Conservation Area. As their settlements now fall within the Ngorongoro ecosystem, they have to co-exist with lions and other natural predators every day. You can click here to watch

  • The Gods Must Be Crazy (1980)

Once you visit Tanzania for the first time and hear young people and children talking about the ‘Msandawee’ film or ‘Bushmen’ film, they’re talking about The Gods Must Be Crazy, a South African comedy directed by Jamie Uys. The film reflects jungle life in Africa as the main actor in the film. The main character, Xi, was living in the Kalahari Desert with his community members, and they were happily going about their life because they knew nothing of the external world, until their world is upended by the mysterious appearance of an unknown artefact: a Coca-Cola bottle.

  • Trash (2014)

This movie, set in Brazil, features three kids – Rafael, Gardo and Rat – who discover a wallet that had been thrown into the trash bin by José Angelo. The discovery of the wallet brings them into conflict with police officers, as the wallet has very crucial information about a famous politician in the city. But at the end of the film, the three kids manage to serve the community as they reveal the misuse and misallocation of budgetary finances by the politicians. In Tanzania, similar problems persist, and once you decide to act like Rafael and his friends, you will potentially be in huge danger of ending up in jail or suffering at the hands of the people you’re trying to uncover as criminals. This has happened a lot recently to journalists in the country.
