This film evoked a feeling of uncertainty of the space between right and wrong.  The culture of this tribe is so far from our reality that, honesty, I don’t believe that we have the right to label their beliefs and customs ourselves.  This film gave me such an uncomfortable feeling […]

I thought that the film was very enlightening and powerful because it was very personal, but at the same time it showed us so much about the Chagga.  I loved how we could clearly see that the topic was important to the filmmaker, and how each story tied in to […]

The way the two women, Ellie’s Aunts, talked about their experiences makes you realize that differences in culture don’t just extend to language, celebrations, or tradition. They go even farther to how people act, and how they see the world. Although [there […]

This film made me reflect on my family.  I am first generation as well, and seeing that film made me wonder if I went to my father’s birth place, what would I find. If I met that part of his family, what would they tell me about my heritage?  What […]

Dear Eli, Thank you so much for sharing your unique story with my classmates and me. I visited Tanzania last summer on a volunteer trip, and I was amazed by the country and its people. Our group leader and many of her friends were Chagga. Like you, they were brave […]
