In the Maasai Traditional Village of Oloimugi (Laikipia Region, Central Kenya), life flows in symbiosis with nature.
In this untouched environment, the Maasai people live in a traditional pastoralist way, pasturing the cattle and gathering what nature has to offer. Their diet is based exclusively on milk, blood, and meat. They do not affect the ecosystem and they not produced any waste. Researches have proven that their lifestyle is totally healthy for the body and sustainable for the planet.

 

An extended 18′ cut titled Oloimugi is currently being screened at film festivals around the world.
