Etnografisk filmvisning fredag 16.30-19.00

Denne fredagen viser og presenterer Frode Storaas to etnografiske filmer på Hotel Terminus. Det blir anledning til å diskutere og kommentere disse.

Filmane omhandlar makt på ulike nivå. Dramaet i filmen Making Rain har utganspunkt i spenninga mellom rituell og formell makt. Denne maktkampen blir i filmen bl.a. knytta til kjønn. Sjølve filmsituasjonen blir og ein faktor maktspelet.

Filmen Fish On! handlar først og fremst om kontroll over ressursar. I denne kampen står indianarane mot overmakta representert av vasskraftinteresser og irrigasjonsjordbruksinteresser, stat og dyre advokatar. Filmen prøver å vera eit talerør for indianarane og set deira politiske argument inn i kulturelle og sosiale rammer.

Making Rain – Shona People of Mozambique
57min. 2007
by Liivo Niglas and Frode Storaas

Vumba hills in Central Mozambique bordering Zimbabwe is the Kingdom of Mambo Chief Chirara. The Mambo’s position is acknowledged by the Government, and besides being the most important ritual leader in the region, the Mambo is given the right to lead court-cases on minor crimes, spirit accusations and domestic affairs. He is the head of several sub-chiefs and ritual leaders. In the northernmost corner of the Mambo’s kingdom Mbeya Gondo, a lady in the 70-thies, is a ritual leader. One of her most important sites for ceremonies is a well-known rock-painted cave. Mambo Chirara is not all that happy with the old lady. He thinks she acts too independently and demands too much money for her ceremonies.
In the film gender issues and local politics are brought to surface as we follow these two leaders during a period when they prepare and perform the annual rainmaking rituals.

Fish On!
a film by Liivo Niglas, Diane Perlov and Frode Storaas
61 min. 2008 

The Klamath River of Oregon and California is one of the most important salmon runs in the United States.  While it is a shadow of what it once was, it still supports an abundance of life and diverse economies all concerned with its future course. This is a film about the Indian tribes of the river ecosystem – what the Klamath means to them and how they draw on traditional and modern resources to restore its strength, beauty and balance.
The film focuses on several tribes of the Klamath River Basin – the Yurok, Hoopa, and Karuk. Yet this story has implications for any number of river ecosystems and indigenous peoples around the world. Through the self described Fish People of the Klamath, the film reminds us how the health of a people and the health of its lands are integrally linked.
