In 1975, I moved with my husband, Shep Abbott, to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya. Shep had been contracted to make two animal documentaries for American television, and I had secured permission from the Columbia University to do two accredited field courses towards my anthropology degree. In between filming wildlife, Shep also filmed our lives with the Maasai. When he returned to the US after a year, I stayed on for an additional six months, living ever more closely with my Maasai friends.
This film is a window on to another time in the life of the Mara and the Maasai whose home it was.
