writer/producer/editor, Tara Belkin in collabortion with Steven Brandt and Kathryn Weedman
Format
Video; DVD
Summary
"Portrays the remarkable lives of a group of Konso hide workers from southern Ethiopia who may be the last people in the world to make and use flaked stone tools regularly. Unlike the 'man the toolmaker' stereotype, most Konso hide workers are women who learn their skills from female relatives. This ethnoarchaeological film shows the complete life cycle of making and using flaked stone artifacts, including scraping hides to produce soft leather products for bedding, bags, drums and even ritual clothing, and the processes of collecting, working, heat-treating, resharpening, recycling, and discarding stone scrapers"--Container.
