Zach’s Ceremony

Growing up isn’t easy, especially for Zach who is rapidly making the transition from boyhood to manhood, in both the modern world and his ancient culture. Pressures from his loving, but staunch father, the temptations of city life and the ever-present spectre of racism all take their toll. Ultimately Zach must embrace the traditions and knowledge of his ancestors and awaken the warrior within.

The themes of the documentary are universal: that of family and connection, while also exploring the fascinating and unique question of what it means to be a modern man belonging to the oldest living culture on earth.
