Summary
During the 1920s it became fashionable for European artists and intellectuals to profess an interest in Africa. But a young French anthropologist named Marcel Griaule wanted to do more than follow fashion. Between 1928 and 1933, he mounted two major expeditions-one to Ethiopia and another which crossed the continent from Dakar to Djibouti. The latter adventure lasted two years and offered new ways for Westerners to learn and think about Africa. As this film illustrates, it was during Griaule's second expedition that he befriended the Dogon people of West Africa. Although some of his conclusions about Dogon culture have met with controversy, Griaule's work created a new paradigm of anthropological field work and made immense contributions to modern ethnology. Presented by Griaule's grandson, the film contains a wealth of both archival and present-day materials
