Shot in the Afar region of Ethiopia, late January 2013. A video essay on life and environment of the Afar people, who live a traditional, pastoralist lifestyle. The modern world is encroaching on their way of life. This video also includes several shots of the UNHCR Refugee Camp in Assaita. The Afar are being subjected to ethnic cleansing in Eritrea and many have managed to flee across the border into Ethiopia. The video is designed to give the viewer a sense of the people and the place.
