African Ceremonies: Documenting a Vanishing World
Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher
Photographers and filmmakers Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher have devoted their entire careers to documenting traditional African societies. They are working together against the clock to record unique and compelling ceremonies and cultures that are rapidly, perhaps irrevocably, changing in the face of modernity. Their insatiable curiosity, incredible hardiness, deep humor, and profound respect for Africa’s indigenous peoples have gained them entry into worlds closed to outsiders. Join them for an eye-opening cultural journey, more than 25 years in the making.
