Village Beat

Anneliese Vandenberg & Austin Peck

Village Beat is a collective that creates art to amplify the voice of the village. Through film, photography, music and public installation, they focus on the protection of the indigenous tribes of East Africa.

Village Beat's first project, a documentary film called Tough Bond, follows the lives of three, teenage Kenyan street kids from the nomadic Turkana tribe. A generation ago, Turkanas grazed cattle and goats and survived as a village. Today, left with no choice, their children flee the starving villages and head for the cities to survive. In the streets and slums, they find a new tribe. Their bond is huffing glue.
