Film explores one of the last truly wild and disappearing places on the planet
12 March 2011 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

The Kalahari Desert in Southern Africa is a world of extremes, its apparent emptiness punctuated by explosions of life. Relentless cycles of dry and wet, scarcity and plenty, dictate which creatures can live here, and which will die. Shot in stunning high definition and 35mm film, and told through the eyes of renowned naturalist, filmmaker and longtime resident, Tim Liversedge, two remarkable films provide a masterful account of the inner workings of one of the last truly wild places on earth.

Kalahari: The Great Thirstland Long spells of sparse rains leave riverbeds dry, and little to eat. Then, as if by magic, swarms and multitudes of birds and insects come to life, great herds of wildebeest and zebra gather, flamingos coming home to breed fill the skies, and bullfrogs arise from years of sleep, when the great rains come to the Kalahari.

Kalahari: The Flooded Desert The Okavango River flows inland through Botswana from mountains in the north, creating a spectacular delta – a permanent wetland in the heart of the desert. It supports a vibrant community of wildlife which would otherwise never call the desert home. But this world of water is no 'safe' oasis. All life here is at the mercy of the delicate balance between the desert and the flood.

Such remaining places with wild animals are rapidly (exponentially, at colossal and monstrous rate) disappearing because the most vicious predator (human) destroys the remaining environment and kills remaining animals with exponential rates while the most vicious predator multiplies with exponential (unbounded) rate.
