Maasai Remix

2019 | 67’ | Tanzania / USA
Ron Mulvihill and Kelly Askew

Maasai Remix follows three Maasai individuals who — in the United Nations, a Tanzanian village, an American university — confront challenges and bring hope to their community by drawing strength from local traditions, modifying them when necessary, and melding them with new resources. Adam Ole Mwarabu advocates for Maasai pastoralists rights to land in international political spheres. Evalyne Mkulati pursues a college education in the USA, having convinced her father to return 12 cows to a man contracted to marry her. Frank Ole Kaipai, the village chairman, faces opposition as he promotes secondary school education and tries to save the village forest. Sharing a goal of Maasai self-determination in an ever-changing world, Adam, Evalyne and Frank innovate while maintaining an abiding respect and love for their culture.
