Purchase: http://www.der.org/films/kenya-boran-part1.html In the midst of a traditional herding territory, a growing town and a new road encroach upon a once-isolated desert people. The complexities brought about by this modernization are shown as two fathers and their sons confront difficult choices between old ways and new. Kenya Boran Part I was designed to provide the social, economic, and political background of the Boran and introduce themes developed in detail in other films. It is especially important to establish a base line for traditional lifestyles and attitudes, increasingly subject to pressures-both intentional and incidental-for change.
a film by David MacDougall & James Blue
part of the Faces of Change series
