Summary: Although the social and economic conditions facing the Maasai people have changed significantly since this classic film was produced, it remains a valuable snapshot of the evolving interaction between an age-old culture, modern influences, and the striking natural surroundings of the Serengeti. Today's geography and anthropology students still stand to gain from the story of Tepilit Ole Saitoti, a Maasai warrior turned park ranger who travels to northern Tanzania to visit his family. Saitoti later became an author of highly regarded texts about his people and their homeland.
