The !Kung San : traditional !Kung life by John Marshall( Visual )

5 editions published between 1988 and 2007 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using footage from 1978 through 1986, this video shows some of the dramatic changes in life-style and subsistence which the !Kung have undergone since their days of traditional gathering and hunting. No longer relying completely on foods obtained self-sufficiently, we glimpse the! Kung being given hand-outs of mealie meal, spending earned money from working in the South African Army on alcohol and consumer goods, and living in areas which increase crowding and argument. Filmmaker and anthropologist John Marshall is filmed helping the !Kung negotiate with South African authorities their right to install a pump on traditional lands. With a move back to traditional lands, and development of cattle herding and planned agriculture, there is a small hope that !Kung can be successful in a mixed economy

At the end of the main film, there is 20 minutes appendix of 11 additional fiddle tunes. Bonus: Simon St. Pierre performs during a visit to Washington, D.C. to accept a National Heritage Award. New England dances: Documentary on the revival of traditional music and dance in the New England states of Maine and Massachusetts, told in the words of local callers, musicians, and dancers.

The meat fight by John Marshall( Visual )

1 edition published in 1973 in Khoisan and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A short film documenting hunting among the Kung Bushmen of Namibia. An argument arises between two bands of hunters when an antelope killed by a hunter from one band is discovered and then distributed by a man from another band. The film illustrates conflict mediation in traditional Ju/'hoan society and the Ju/'hoan leaders' ability to settle disputes without violence and without formal political organization. At the time of filming the Ju/'hoansi were one of the few surviving Kalahari groups that lived by hunting and gathering. During his time in the Kalahari, John Marshall shot over 600,000 feet of motion picture film from which 24 films on the Ju/'hoansi, have been edited. These films on the lives and culture of the Kung people constitute a body of work that continue to define the fields of anthropology and ethnographic filmmaking today
