The Film

In the Kalahari Desert in southern Africa, three Bushmen who are blessed with amazing animal tracking and endurance skills, hunt their prey and engage in a fight to death. The Art of the Hunt opens up a world that has rarely been filmed and offers a unique view and understanding of this ancient ritual.
