Octopus Hunters

PROJECT: 
The Octopus Hunters of Zanzibar, Tanzania

CHALLENGE: 
Explain the economic impact of tourism on the fishing trade off the developing coast of Africa.

OUR SOLUTION: 
Conduct an ethnographic study that focused on a few individuals who’s lives were uprooted by the tourism industry.  The findings from the study were then developed into a narrated, documentary style film that unraveled the intricacies of how a changing and developing country battles the challenge of exploitation.

RESULT: 
A carefully developed script resulting in a powerful short film.  It was a look into one woman’s experience as she faced a cultural shift that changed generations of established behavior.
