African Masks: Burkina Faso
Many peoples of Burkina Faso continue to create elaborate and beautiful masks that are used in funerals, initiations, village purification ceremonies,and market day dances as they have been for centuries. These masks are almost indistinguishable from the great masterpieces of African art that have been displayed in museums and illustrated in texts for decades. This DVD includes three videos: the first, shot on film in 1977 and 1985, inlcudes historic footage of masks from the Mossi, Bwa, Bobo, and Nuna (Gurunsi) peoples. Two videos were shot on digital video of the 2002 mask festival in Dedougou, and of Nuna masks in Savara and Tisse.
