Kung Short Films

Loading...
Between 1950 and 1958, John Marshall made four expeditions to film the Ju/'hoansi (a group of!Kung Bushmen) of the Nyae Nyae region of Namibia (then South West Africa). During this time, Marshall shot over 300,000 feet of 16mm film (157 hours). He later produced a total of 23 films exclusively from this footage. 15 of those are short films that Marshall referred to as "sequence films." Each focuses on a single event, providing the viewer a brief introduction followed by an uninterrupted sequence. These shorts were intended as educational films; the films' beauty and high emotional content are indicative of the close bond that Marshall had formed with his subjects. This collection combines fourteen of Marshall's short!Kung films.
