Overview

Due to the success of her controversial documentaries in the late 1930s, German film director Leni Riefenstahl was one of the first Westerners—and the first white woman—allowed to venture into the remote and desolate valleys of Sudan between 1962 and 1969 to photograph the primitive Mesakin Nuba tribe. This magnificent volume compiles Riefenstahl's rare photos of the tribe's vanishing rituals and customs—a fascinating record of permanent anthropological and ethnological importance. A lasting tribute to a sadly neglected people of Africa. 9 1/2" x 12 1/2". Color photos.
