The Wild West of Namibia explores the great and eerie Skeleton Coast, the shipwrecks there including the Dunedin Star, the souls of the dead diamond hunters on her shores and the history of the diamond rush at the turn of the century. Inland discoveries include the elusive Flip Stander, who has lived in the desert among the desert lions, documenting them for his website, desertlion.info. After a surreptitious border crossing into Angola we learn of the Himba people, their matriarchal society, their tragic past, the infamous German General Lother Von Trotha, who nearly decimated them in what is considered a precursor to the Nazi Genocide, as well as their future struggles in preventing a hydro electric dam from ruining their lands and way of life.
This was shot, filmed, written, narrated and edited by David Whalen on a Panasonic GH2 and GoPro Hero 2
