Duka's Dilemma by Jean Lydall( Visual )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Depuis les années 1970, l'anthropoloque Jean Lydall réalise de nombreux films avec la population Hamer du Sud de l'Ethiopie. Pour ce documentaire, il suit le parcours de Duka, jeune femme Hamer héroïne de ces deux précédents films (The Women Who Smile et Our Way of loving) au prise avec une situation familiale complexe. Grâce aux relations privilégiées que l'anthropologue et sa fille Kaira entretiennent depuis plus de vingt ans avec la famille de Duka, il parvient à filmer les relations conflictuelles de celle-ci avec sa coépouse, Boro, ou les situations de crise familiale telle que la violente dispute entre sa mère et son mari, Sago. Au cours de cette période agitée qui témoigne aussi d'évènements heureux comme l'accouchement de Boro et celui de Duka, chacun parvient à exprimer son point de vue et les relations entre les protagonistes semblent finalement trouver leur équilibre

Is peace possible? When we look at the history of mankind, questions arise about the inevitability of war and the impossibility of peace.

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."
