The Maasai are one of the only tribes that continue to live separately to civilization, and it is a rare gift for an outsider to be asked to join in their rituals. Vision Films is proud to present The White Maasai Warrior, the stunning new film from Benjamin Eicher where he is asked to join one of the most intriguing cultures on Earth.
Shot completely on location in Kenya with exquisite 4K footage of Africa and its incredible wildlife, The White Maasai Warrior will be available to rent or buy on DVD and across major VOD platforms on Dec. 10, 2019.
Directed and produced by German documentary filmmaker Benjamin Eicher, who has made such films as Solar System: The Secrets of the Universe, Amazing Ocean 3D and Great Barrier Reef 4K, The White Maasai Warrior follows Eicher as he experiences the life of a Maasai warrior under the watchful eye of Maasai Anthony Tira, Ololoso, Ole Kimonio, Ole Mpoke and Ole Sempeyo.
For the first time in history, a white man has been invited to become a Maasai Warrior, one of the last tribes on Earth to live as they did hundreds of years ago. Benjamin will live with the tribe, sleep and hunt in the bush, learn their customs of dance and play, and discover how to survive the dangers of the wilderness. To become a Maasai is a great journey into the unknown.
The White Maasai Warrior will be available on digital for an SRP of $4.99-$9.99 from platforms including iTunes, Amazon, Vudu, Playstation, Google Play, and FandangoNow, as well as cable affiliates including Comcast, Spectrum, Charter, Cox, Verizon, Frontier, Dish, and DirectTV. The film will also open theatrically in Germany on Jan. 16, 2020.
“We are honored to be presenting The White Maasai Warrior,” says Vision Films Managing Director/ CEO Lise Romanoff. “Benjamin’s journey gives us such an incredible look inside the daily life of the Maasai. It is a very special opportunity, as getting this intimate access to the tribe is not common to outsiders.”
