‘Kariba’ is a teaser trailer made by a group of friends, the Blue Forest Collective: Daniel Clarke, Jac Hamman, Charl Collocott and Daniel Snaddon.
The story: A modern African fairy-tale, the story is inspired by the history and mythology of the Kariba dam in Zimbabwe (built in the 1950s). When conflict between ambitious dam-builders and the tribes they have displaced worsen, the spirit of the river leaves a fearless daughter on its banks. Helped by the foreman’s son and guided by dreams, she must embark on a perilous journey to the source to uncover the solution to the feud and find her true identity.
