My Hunter's Heart

From award-winning directors Craig and Damon Foster

My Hunter's Heart
My Hunter’s Heart explores the world’s most ancient shamanic culture and how it is now at the brink of extinction. It tracks the Khomani San of the Central Kalahari, the oldest living indigenous tribe in the world, and who are genetically linked to every human being on planet earth. In modern times, their traditional nomadic way of life has changed and westernisation has severed their link to the land and the animals. The film follows younger members of the clan as they embark on an epic journey to try to recapture some of the knowledge and skills of their ancestors. The children feel there is no future and the elders are faced with haunting reminders of their past.
