Summary, etc.:
The Hadza, East Africa's last remaining true hunter-gatherers, have lived on their land near the Rift Valley for over 50,000 years. As globalization and technology encroach on their territory, their way of life has been slowly whittled away from them. This documentary serves as a comprehensive look at their customs -- from dating rituals to schooling to foraging to weapons production -- as explained by several natives and noted anthropologists. Animations illustrate their creation belief and the origin of fire. The Hadza: Last of the First serves as a call to action to establish a protective land corridor for the survival of this community.
