Kalahari rain song by Elana Bregin and Belinda Kruiper.

This moving and unusual story brings together the voices of two South African women, different in background, connected in spirit. Kalahari rain song reflects the complex reality of the Khomani Bushman community that Belinda is a part of. It includes powerful photographic portraits of Bushman life as well as unique pieces of art by acclaimed Bushman artist Vetkat Kruiper. Through the telling of her own personal journey, Belinda powerfully evokes the Bushmen’s continuing struggles for survival, land and identity in South Africa today.
