German educational film: Children of East Africa

Film | Accession Number: 2002.189.1 | RG Number: RG-60.3652 | Film ID: 2594

This film seems to closely parallel documentation regarding other films that were shot by Dr. Ludwig Kohl Larsen and his research team during the German Africa Expeditions that took place from 1934 to 1936 and again from 1937 to 1939. This expedition went to East Africa to study the hunter gatherer tribe of the region near Lake Eyasi. This tribe was called the Hadzabe, a nomadic tribe from Tanzania. This particular short ethnographic film features mainly children at play. They are young boys, running naked and swimming in the lake, climbing trees, eating coconuts, and fishing in the lake. It is not yet confirmed if the people in this particular film are actually members of the Hadzabe tribe.
