UPSTAIRS AT THE RAI

Tuesday 26 January 7.00pm

PICK OF THE FESTIVAL    
A selection of award winning films from the 2015 edition of the RAI FESTIVAL OF ETHNOGRAPHIC FILM

KALANDA - THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE BUSH

Director/Anthropologist: Lorenzo Ferrarini
UK / 2014 / 62 min
Location: Burkina Faso
Language: Jula with English subtitles

The film received the Richard Werbner Award for Visual Ethnography and a commendation in the RAI Film Prize category.

In some parts of West Africa, hunting is much more than killing animals. A donso is no common hunter, but a healer, a diviner, a ritual specialist and amulet maker. Kalanda is a unique initiatory journey into their knowledge from the perspective of the filmmaker. It was filmed during a year of research in Burkina Faso, thanks to the filmmakers initiation into donsoya. His teacher becomes a narrator who carries him and the viewer through a variety of experiences that show the richness of donsoya.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director.
