Summary
In this classic documentary filmed in 1952 and 1953, the Kalahari Bushmen of Africa wage a constant war for survival against the hot arid climate and unyielding soil. "The hunters" focuses on four Ju/'hoansi men who undertake a hunt to obtain meat for their village. The chronicle of their 13-day trek hunting a giraffe is shared when they return home, illustrating the ancient roots and continual renewal of African tribal cultures
