The Making of a Hybrid Film: People of the Delta by Joey L
Photographer Joey L. has shared today a behind the scenes look at how People of the Delta’s scripted scenes were merged with real life events.
For centuries, Ethiopia’s Lower Omo Valley has been a crossroads for many distinct tribes. During times of drought, natural resources become scarce, escalating clashes between groups. In an ever-changing landscape, young men and women come of age in an unfamiliar time.
The story is narrated from two unique perspectives. Uri- a young boy from the Hamar tribe who becomes a man during his rite of passage ceremony, and Segelgwo- an elder chief of the Daasanach, who reflects on his community’s uncertain future. -said on Vimeo-
