Guiné, Aldeia Indígena em Lisboa / Guinea-Bissau, Indial Village in Lisbon

by Agência Geral das Colônias
(Documentary, Portugal, 1931, 12'25”, BW, silent, Fr ST)

Guiné, Aldeia Indígena em Lisboa

The public rushes around the Minister to visit, as at the zoo, a Guinean village reconstituted in a park of Lisbon: daily activities, Muslim prayer, women with bare breasts. The camera pins faces, attitudes, busts. Then accompanies a dance to the sound of marimbas and drums. To conclude this exotic visit, kings of the tribe are decorated by a general, under the bust of the Republic.
