The film “Honey” depicts the production of honey from wild bees as well as different aspects of honey consumption in the highlands of central Angola where honey is an important means of subsistence and cash income. The film was conceived and shot by a group of villagers from the Cusseque area. “Honey” is the outcome of participatory film workshop organised by Martin Gruber and Miquel Hilario for the interdisciplinary research project “The Future Okavango”, investigating sustainable resource management in the Okavango Basin.

THE GO-BETWEEN - AFAR OF ETHIOPIA / 37 MIN

Norsko, 2014, 37 min

A woman is reported killed - another case for Hussein.The Islamic pastoral Afars inhabit the north eastern rangelands of Ethiopia. Some have settled in towns and trade centres where also the Ethiopian government is present with the police and other government officials. Many Afars have a foot in both sectors, having a home in town while maintaining close contact with their nomadic relatives. Hussein Hayie has a government position as Peace and Security officer. His work is to judge whether an incident should be handled as a criminal case for the police or be left as a case to be solved the traditional way by the elders of the clans. The Afar political organization is based on both territory and kinship. The political institutions are geared towards social control and the resolution of conflicts. The tribal leaders are often called upon to intervene before a small matter escalates to homicide and if homicide occurs, to work out agreements of compensation in order to avoid blood-feuds. The film follows Hussein Hayie in town and when he visits his families in the nomadic camps. As a government employee he is continuously on duty and in the film we see how he is called to act.

 “Afluentes” are small rivers or streams that flow towards a bigger river or lake which, in this case, symbolize Ayahuasca. An ancient psychedelic brew that changes peoples’ perception and brought together, in this film, a teacher, a traveller and a desperate man to the same place. This documentary focuses on the increase of spiritual tourists in the Peruvian amazon, modern shamanism and the healing potentials of traditional plant medicine.
