Overview

Although the Nuba of Kau - anthropologists call them the "South East Nuba" - live little more than 100 miles from the gentle and peace-loving Mesakin, they speak a different language and observe different customs and conventions. A wild and passionate people, they are diametrically opposed to the Mesakin in character and temperament. Their knife-fights, dances of love and elaborately painted faces and bodies, which resemble "living Picassos", are unequalled by any surviving primitive race on earth. Leni Riefenstahl does not claim to have captured their entire way of life in this book. Rather, she has concentrated on photographing what distinguishes the South East Nuba from other tribes of her acquaintance. Leni Riefenstahl's unforgettable photographic impressions of the life of the People of Kau bear final witness to a primitive tribe which is menaced by the advance of industrial civilization and slowly subsiding into the mists of time.

Four years ago, St. Martin's published Leni Riefenstahl's eponymous memoir, followed the next year by Olympia, a photographic record of the 1936 Olympic games and then The Last of the Nuba in 1995. Now, they continue their publishing program with the important and controversial filmmaker (Triumph of the Will) in People of Kau. Here, 224 pages of color photographs document the tatooing, knife fights, face painting, dancing and everyday life of the Nuba of Kau.
