This Kaoko project consists on building the content around the life history of one person, Katjira Muniombara, symbolized by his homestead or "Onganda" in Okapare. This allows us to explore the traditions, memories, relationships, ceremonies and the landscape of the Kaokoveld. The fountain stories is the linear version of the interactive pilot that is thus being developed.

This film is part of the ICT4ID* DVDThe Living Kowledge Archives: the Fountain of Stories (consult it here)
