Truth Be Told


Octopus Hunters

The Octopus Hunters of Zanzibar, Tanzania

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

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.

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.
