Screening: Butterfly people @ Louise Leakey auditorium

Butterfly People, a short documentary about the Samburu will be screened at the Louise Leakey auditorium on Saturday afternoon.

Set against a background of varied and magnificent scenery, the film, made by Rhodia Mann, who was adopted into a Samburu family, begins with Rhodia’s personal involvement with the family.

Through the life story of her Samburu ‘mother’, she blends historical fact with folklore and mythology to give a history of the people, as far as it is known.

The story traces the past, the present and to the fascinating circumcision ceremonies of 2005.

Rhodia is also a bead specialist and author. Her books will be on sale at the event.

Refreshments 3.15pm, Show starts 4pm.

Tickets available on Mpesa: Till no: 400800.
