The tribe Ju/’Hoansi in Namibia, one of the most ancient civilizations on the planet, is forced to go beyond the boundaries of Kalahari Desert and engage into contact with the modern world for the first time. The plot trick of the film The Gods Must Be Crazy is coming to life in a playful documentary that accompanies these lovable heroes as they embark on a life’s journey. The film gradually encourages the natives to step up from being a mere object of observation and take on the role of the observer, aiming to create the illusion of an alien wanderer who casts a pristine glance at today’s world.
