Invitation to attend a film at WESSA – Tribe V Pride on 6th September 2018

Tribe versus Pride: A film by Derek and Beverley Joubert

For thousands of years, Kenya’s Maasai practised an ancient ritual to prove skills and courage–young men ventured into the Savannah to kill a lion. Due to habitat loss, poaching and hunting, there only 20,000 lions left in Africa today. As a means to stop the falling lion numbers, the Maasai decided to change their culture: instead of killing lions, young men now compete in a different physical test–athletics. In 2008, the biannual Kenyan Maasai Olympics were founded. Courage can still be expressed; while the lion may continue to roam the African savannahs.

Venue: WESSA, The Barn, 31 Sanctuary Road, Kirstenhof.
