We are Proud to Present a Presentation about the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as South West Africa, from the German Südwestafrika, Between the Years 1884-1915 by Jackie Sibblies Drury.

An idealistic group of actors trying to tell the story of a little known genocide that took place in what is now Namibia. They soon find their attempts to bring the past to life awaken very-much-alive wounds of a shared and ugly American past.
