Description

At one level "Okavango Gods" is a fast-moving adventure "at the mouth of rivers", a story of a young Hambukushu man, Pula Barotse, and his beloved friend Julia, daughter of the Portuguese doctor at Shakawe clinic. Together the young couple struggle to contend with the traditional rituals of sacrifice for rain, and with the biggest flood to ever hit the Okavango delta. At another level, it is an allegory of Africa - mystical and beautiful, both wayward and ordered - evoking the ancient story of Gilgamesh and the flood. Nature, magic, fetish and ritual rule, just as they did 5000 years ago. But the Hambukushu people, and the Okavango river that sustains them, are threatened today.
