Editorial Reviews

What is it REALLY like to live in Africa? Scenes of daily life in the village of Sayaga, a small farming village in southwest Burkina Faso. Filmed in 2002 by Christopher D. Roy, Professor of African art at the University of Iowa, the DVD includes scenes of food preparation, building a house, children in school, spinning thread, weaving, making pottery, forging iron, mask performances, a traditional funeral, sand divination, balafon music, and much more. To provide a balanced view of life in Africa I have included scenes of city life in Accra, Ghana as part of the introduction. Professor Roy has taught African art history at the University of Iowa for thirty years, and he has been doing research in Burkina Faso for thirty-seven years. He recently published The Land of Flying Masks: Art and Culture of Burkina Faso (Munich: Prestel, 2007).

The DVD is suitable for K-12 students, college students, and anyone interested in life in Africa.
