Abstract:

"A Place Without People tells the story of the eviction of the indigenous people from their lands in Tanzania to make way for the creation of the world's most famous nature reserves. In Tanzania, one of the poorest nations in the world, the government, the tourist industry, and conservation organizations have advanced the idea that Africans are intruders into what was once a pristine Garden of Eden. The film describes how before World War II, the land of the Maasai was seized by British colonialists to set aside for their own sport--hunting. But as game grew scarce, the British realized they should preserve it and the Serengeti was turned into a vast national park in the 1950s and 1960s. This land, possibly the longest-inhabited place on earth, was labelled a 'primordial wilderness' and, although there was no evidence that local people threatened wildlife, it was decided that 'no men, not even native ones, should live inside its borders' ... the documentary gives voice to the indigenous people who 'shouldn't be there, ' who continue to be antagonized and excluded, while the tourist industry is rapidly depleting the area's natural resources, such as water."--Container.
