The Department of Nature Conservation wants to create a game reserve on Ju/'hoan territory. People will be forbidden to raise livestock or crops. Instead, Ju/'hoansi will be encouraged to act like "Bushmen" and hunt for the amusement of tourists. Urgent grass roots organizing ensues as the people seek to control their traditional lands342ocn858054123visu20140.60A Kalahari Family Part 2: End of the RoadJohn Marshall is reunited with Toma's family in 1978. Like a majority of Ju/'hoansi, they have settled at Tjum!kui, an administrative post run by the South African government. They came looking for water, jobs and an easier life, but found poverty, malnutrition and violence. Desperate for a more stable existence, the family heads back to their traditional water hole, /Aotcha, with shovels, cattle, and plans to start farming331ocn858053954visu0.60Fishing at the Stone Weir Part 2There are many men fishing now and even the children on shore imitate the motions of the men. Rain sweeps over the tundra but the work goes on, the men splashing through the weir, furs hitched high, seemingly little affected by the cold water331ocn858053871visu0.60First FilmFirst Film was edited and narrated by Lorna Marshall and is comprised of footage shot in 1951 on the second Marshall family expedition to the Kalahari Desert. It is intimate in style, very carefully filmed, with a wealth of practical information about the material culture and structure of Ju/'hoan (!Kung Bushmen) hunter-gatherer society192ocn858054070visu20140.60A Kalahari Family Part 1: A Far CountryIn 1951, the Marshall family set out to document the life of the Bushmen of the Kalahari. After a week of hard travel in desert-adapted vehicles, they met Toma Tsamkxao and his Ju/'hoan band in Nyae Nyae. In their own words, Toma's extended family describes how they survive by gathering bush foods and hunting game. Thus begins a relationship between the Ju/'hoansi and the Marshalls that will last over half a century101ocn251891688book19760.56Marshall, LornaThe!Kung of Nyae Nyae33ocn858054194visu19570.74Marshall, JohnKung bushmen hunting equipmentCe film montre en détail tout l'équipement de chasse des Ju'hoan et de la façon dont chaque pièce est fabriquée et utilisée, de la collecte des matières premières à la fabrication finale, y compris la préparation du poison des flèches.

With its many small wholesalers and its seven large auction houses, Tsukiji is a small city in itself, with its own unique culture, work hours, and traditions. The video captures the vitality and earthy humour of a variety of people who work in the market, and examines how they, like all Japanese, are increasingly affected by the global market economy and by changes in the larger Japanese culture11ocn772552062art19690.47Marshall, LornaThe medicine dance of the !Kung bushmen11ocn493246183visu2005Marshall, JohnThe Meat Fight !Kung San SeriesIn the absence of hierarchies and institutionalized authority, leadership among the !Kung derives from talent and experience. It is exercised spontaneously and informally in the mediation of conflicts. In this film, an argument arises between two bands when an antelope killed by a hunter from one band is found and distributed by a man from another band. The film illustrates the role of the leaders in !Kung society and the ability of the !Kung to settle disputes without violence and without formal political organization11ocn493175043visu2004Bitter Melons !Kung San SeriesThis is a film about a small band of /Gwi San living in the arid landscape of the central Kalahari Desert in Africa. The hardships of their everyday survival are woven into the songs of a blind musician, Ukxone, who composes music on a hunting bow. His songs evoke the /Gwi landscape and its diverse wildlife; they depict the routine of their daily lives: gathering food, collecting water, hunting for animals, and sharing as a community.Bitter Melons, his favorite song, is about a woman who learned from her Bantu neighbors to plant melon seeds despite the agriculturalists protesting that wild melons taste bitter. Song, dance, landscape, and life are not so separated for the /Gwi San; their margins are fluid. !Gai, a member of the band, returns one day with a group of his relatives. Visitors and hosts enjoy the social occasion, as young boys play animal games (porcupine, hyena), and make their own traditional music on the bow (songs of animals, like giraffe and kudu). Men and boys dance the "ostrich courting dance." Finally, !Gai and his family depart with their other relatives into the tall grass of the veld to the sound of Ukxone's Bitter Melons11ocn772563863art19610.47Marshall, LornaSharing, talking, and giving : relief of social tensions among Kung Bushmen11ocn772513765art19570.47Marshall, LornaThe kin terminology of the Kung bushmen11ocn772565178art19600.47Marshall, Lorna!Kung bushman bands11ocn897770652visu20140.80First filmFirst Film was edited and narrated by Lorna Marshall and is comprised of footage shot in 1951 on the second Marshall family expedition to the Kalahari Desert.
