Set to come out early in 2019, ‘Hairareb’ represents a unique and beautiful portrayal of a truly Namibian story along with an intimate depiction of its culture, while also presenting themes with universal appeal. The story is told in English, through the eyes of one of Namibia’s oldest and most deeply rooted tribes; the Damara/Nama, and hence is an introduction and tribute to the tribe, while incorporating Namibian cinema fit for both local and international audiences.

The cultural aspect is very important to the production team as the production team plans to go to great lengths when researching the film by consulting community elders, in order to stay true to the cultural representation.
