Duka's dilemma : a visit to Hamar, Southern Ethiopia( Visual )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Duka is a married woman and mother of five young children, living in Hamar, Southern Ethiopia. She welcomes her friend Kaira, daughter of anthropologist Jean Lydall, by encouraging her to make a film about herself and her family. Ever since her husband married a beautiful, young second wife, Duka has been in a state of emotional turmoil. Among the Hamar, who live with herds of cattle and goats, and cultivate small fields of sorghum in remote, bush-covered country, men are allowed to marry more than one wife, but only a few men ever do so. Duka wonders why her husband married again; did he find her too old, or was he turned off because of her chronic malaria? Also, she doesn't know what to make of Boro, the new wife, who is silent and never expresses her feelings except in rage? And on top of this, Duka's mother-in-law is angry with her son for marrying a second wife behind her back. Duka is optimistic, however, that things will improve once her co-wife gives birth. Sagonda, the mother-in-law, talks about her indispensable role whenever a daughter-in-law gives birth, and then a scene unfolds in which Boro, Duka's co-wife, goes into labour and, with the help of Duka, the mother-in-law and two other women, gives birth to a son. Marcelo Fiorini describes this scene as "some of the most stunningly powerful footage ever shot in ethnographic film." Nine months later, Duka, having given birth to yet another son, explains how well she and her co-wife are getting on with each other, but how their mother-in-law, Sagonda, is creating problems. At the naming ceremony for Duka's child a heated dispute erupts between the mother-in-law and her son, Sago. Sagonda, who suffers feelings of exclusion in her son's ménage, demands a new house, while her son complains about her drinking habits. The elders who are present resolve the dispute by recommending that Sago build a new house for his mother. The construction of a roof for this house by local men and boys both parallels and complements the birthing scene in the first part of the film. The film ends with Duka speaking to Kaira, saying, "Tell Tammo's dad he should see me in the film. May his friends and yours know it; hearing and seeing, may they like it. That's my request for the film.""-- Film Festival of the 16th Congress of IUAES at China Folklore network

Bury the Spear! by Ivo A Strecker( Visual )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is peace possible? When we look at the history of mankind, questions arise about the inevitability of war and the impossibility of peace. These issues have never been more important to our future than they are in now in our globally-conscious, post-911 world. Made by the anthropologist/filmmaking team of Ivo Strecker and Alula Pankhurst, Bury the Spear! focuses on the 1993 peace-making efforts of the Abore, Borana, Konso, Tsamai, Hamar and Dasanach to end decades of ethnic war in the southern Ethiopian Rift Valley
The perils of face : essays on cultural contact, respect and self-esteem in southern Ethiopia( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present essays try to know how the culturally different peoples of Ethiopia remember their past, and what conceptions they entertain of each other; explore the dangers inherent in situations of cultural contact and examine how the powerful notions of pride, honor, name, and self-esteem come into play, as people struggle to maintain their identity, individually or as a group. The master trope for this kind of sensitivity and vulnerability in social and cultural interaction is "face". This is why the volume is entitled "The perils of face."
