Disappearing World: Masai Women: The Masai of Kenya

2003 NR

Shot in the highlands of eastern Africa, this remarkable documentary chronicles the trials and triumphs of women in the highly patriarchal Masai tribe, exploring topics such as marriage and female circumcision. Denied a role in the central power and economic structure of a culture centered on owning cattle, these women nevertheless have found a way to remain central to Masai society.
