The Last Safari

Photojournalist Elizabeth L Gilbert set out on a journey through remote Africa to present slide shows to Maasai warriors, whom she documented in her books decades earlier.

Many have never seen photos of themselves before, let alone a projection on a silver screen under the stars. The Last Safari is a documentary project ‘in motion’ that in part, sets out to discover the role of tradition in a rapidly changing world.

If you would like to support Elizabeth finishing this project in time for the 2013 Sundance Film Festival submissions, please visit here.

 

I’m Holly - born and raised in the rural British Counties, my mother began life on a sugar farm in Zululand. After reading Anthropology at university in London, working for a political activist filmmaker in India, and doing a short stint under the bright lights of Bollywood – I decided it was time to return to the motherland. To earn a crust in the name of wanderlust, I finished up a post grad in media and hotfooted around South Africa as a freelance travel journalist.
