Whisperers of the Delta

A film by Rufusia Molefeh

Set in the Okavango Delta, the inhabitants of the small communities of Ditshiping & Boro live an unconventional way of life of human-elephant co-existence in an ecosystem which is home to the majestic African Elephant Species. Driven by an instinct to stay alive, both human life and wildlife are on an even scale in this ecosystem. Due diligence of respect to territory is the only way to stay alive for the people of the wetlands. The aim of this documentary is to express how the unconventional lifestyle of the people of the Okavango Delta has had a major impact in conserving the elephant species of the Delta. Four female characters invite us into their unconventional lifestyle of human-elephant co-existence. Their story reveals the spectacular connection humans have with nature and their due diligence to respect of territory, all entirely based on human instinct and the sole purpose of survival.
