Plot synopsis
The film "'Kalashnikov1 from the Stone Age" describes the life of one of the most belligerent tribes in Africa called Surma, which lives along the river Оmо in the south of Ethiopia near the border with Sudan. This territory is an oasis of virgin Africa with its patriarchal traditions, harsh tempers and wild nature.
Almost every Surma man has a "Kalashnikov" submachine gun, with which he will never part. "AK-47" is now as inseparable from Surma men as a two-meter long Donga stick.

Selected in the following festivals :
- Moscow International Film Festival (MIFF), Moscow (Russia), 2010
