Baxu and the Giants to premiere in September

Get ready to watch the local film Baxu and the Giants soon!

It is finally ready for screening. One of the most anticipated local films will be premiering next month. The writer and producer of Baxu and the Giants Florian Schott shared a poster on his Facebook page saying the movie will be upon us soon.

Namibian short film Baxu and the Giants, tels the story of how rhino poaching triggers social change in a village in Damaraland.

Producer Andrew Botelle (The Power Stone, Born in Etosha) was commissioned by the Legal Assistance Center to create a film that aims at sensitising teenagers to the issue of poaching in Namibia.

Writer Girley Jazama (Actress in The White Line, Revere Them Those Men) and writer/director Florian Schott (Katutura, Everything Happens for a Reason) chose to tell the story from the inside out – through the eyes of an innocent but toughened-by-life 8 year old girl who is deeply rooted in nature and her own heritage. The character’s name Baxu is short for !Khubaxu, which means I come from the soil.

Through this storytelling device, which spans the time between the age of hunters and gatherers to present day, the film aims to reach an audience worldwide and for audiences to understand some of the underlying social issues in rural Namibia that can lead to poaching.
