Legends of the Bushmen combines wildlife filmmaking with the unique stories of Namibia's indigenous people, the Bushmen. As the film's producer, wildlife cinematographer and on-camera narrator, Ginger Mauney uses a blend of natural history filmmaking and traditional storytelling to explore the unique connection the Bushmen maintain with wild animals as told through their legends. The trust that the filmmaker establishes with the Bushmen resonates in the footage and honours what is fundamental in their lives.
