Pride & Pastoralist. This short film gives an insight into the complicated layers of the human-animal conflict and highlights the importance of coexistence in the future of sustaining wildlife populations in Kenya.

Michel and Yann were filming from the air in a helicopter, for Yann’s next film “Human”. They then flew onto Ethiopia where they continued filming for three weeks.

You should have a look at Yann’s previous film “Home”, there are some incredible aerial images from all over the world (and Magadi ;-). You can download it on this link .
